South Australia Cabernet Sauvignon


Bin 389 South Australia Cabernet Shiraz 1996

A lovey amalgam of aromas of blackberry mocha and aniseed which follow through onto the full bodied palate - very much the DNA of mature Penfolds. Not sure that anybody does the Cabernet Shiraz Blend better than they do. The Yalumba Signature would come close. Going to a Yalumba Dinner tonight so it will be good to reacquaint with the Signature. This was more enjoyable than its more expensive elder brother the Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet from the same year, 1996, drank recently - the latter lacking finesse. 69% Cabernet Sauvignon; 31% Shiraz. โ€” 13 days ago

Wynns Coonawarra Estate

John Riddoch Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon 1994

Wow. Really, really good. It's lovely when I wine really delivers. Excellent aged Cab but for mine I didn't get much of the Coonawarra terrior. Could live for ever as this cork was fine and the wine still was easily in the zone. โ€” 6 months ago

McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Black red appearance. Sweet ripe blackberries on the nose. Rich jammy blackberries on the palate with an almost raisin finish and a lengthy tannin that lingers. Delightfully delicious. โ€” 11 days ago


Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Deep Crimson. Leafy Cabernet aromas with cassis and Cedar. Blackberry flavours with ripe smooth tannins - oak nicely integrated into the fruit. Amazing QPR for $25. Gold Medal at the 2012 Royal Queensland Wine Show. โ€” 4 days ago

The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2010

This is the 2010 Yalumba Signature Series Cabernet Shiraz named in honour of Yalumba Ambassador Jane Ferrari who is holding the bottle next to me. Jane travels the world spruiking the Gospel of Yalumba in the most entertaining and knowledgeable way. This was an outstanding Cabernet Shiraz Blend. Equal in quality and cellaring potential to Penfolds Bin 389. Blackberry and chocolatey tannins. Sweet berry fruit still with noticeable oak and a long cellaring potential. A classic wine for a classic lady who would get a job in Stand up Comedy if she wasnโ€™t so good at her current job!!! @Delectable โ€” 11 days ago

@Bill Bender I will have to google Bill Pullman now. Obviously an actor who gets a lot of work ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘ŒSeriously the Hill-Smiths who own Yalumba couldnโ€™t pay her enough for the job she does. Performed a brilliant parody called โ€œQueen of the Road โ€œ about the Roger Miller classic.
