Penfolds

Grange Hermitage Bin 95 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Floral nose with back drop of smoke, you could smell this all day. Mouthful of Black olives, dark berries, nuances of blackberries and smoked bacon note penetrate the entire palate. Soft tannins that sail on and on...has endless years ahead of it. — 9 days ago

Penfolds

Koonunga Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

3.3. Our old friend, the K H Shiraz Cabernet, with the 2016 better than ever. This used to be our house wine, and it may be again. A good deal on sale at $9.95, usually $11.99. — 9 days ago

Yalumba

The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2005

Yalumbas Signature Series always produces a faithful rendition of the Cabernet Shiraz blend - the Cab in the slight majority. Nose of mint and black fruits. Quite dense - still with a short term future despite some professional opinions on the drinking window. On the palate blackberry - soft tannins nearly fully resolved. Nearly as good as Penfolds Bin 389 without the cellaring future. — 6 days ago

Terre à Terre

Wrattonbully Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Finesse, a great way to show off what Wrattonbully can produce.
Medium bodied could even be a classic in the making.
Need to hunt for the Crayeres reserve and found out what this team can really do.

St. Marys Vineyard

Bells & Whistles Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

Color of vivid ruby, clear with a bit bloody grapefruit note. Nose is nice with dark fruits, oak, a bit spice and strawberry, a bit crayon, and full of nose. Taste is subtle sweetness, very easy to drink, paint, dried strawberries, zesty note, ripe grapes, a bit mineral, and flavors are plenty in harmony. Aftertaste is also long with oak and some more sweetness, some more tobacco leaves, and some subtle acidity, low tannins and very tasty. Nice jewel. — 14 days ago

Juniper Estate

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

More berry/cassis than leafy herbal Margaret River style - touches of capsicum though. Very enjoyable but I don’t know whether I would pick this as Margaret River in a blind tasting. Medium bodied but M+ intensity. Nearby neighbors of some of the big name producers without the price tag. — 10 days ago

Houghton

Gladstones Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Back at the Cape Mentelle International Cabernet Tasting for 2008 this was a Wow wine and new to me at the time. Colour is a dark rich crimson. Plummy minty aromas with black fruits. A lovely mature Margaret River Cabernet. Very fine tannins. Brings up the old question as to why do we cellar some wines. This to me was more wow in 2011 than it is now, but still good. — 15 days ago
