Yalumba 'The Signature' Cabernet Shiraz 2003
Barossa Valley, 14.0%, cork, 92 pts, Drink 2009-2014.
Quite reserved on the nose, but nuances of cassis, liquorice and menthol coming through. On the palate it fills out with generous fruit, with a strong blackberry and red currant presence, finishing with round but assertive tannins. Big and ripe, but with some years ahead of it to give way for more refined tertiary characteristics.
