Blue Pyrenees

Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2012

In an era of making cabernets for softies here is one with poise and structure; hard to find but another group gave it a trophy; recognition of completeness at such a young age; has a tannic seam setting it apart from many floppy Coonawarras and Margaret Rivers who think to have claimed the pinnacle; tautly wound flavours of tobacco and olive, no raw fruit flavours only finesse here with a coulis of tastes; Blue Pyrenees Estate #avoca 2012 cabernet 68%, merlot 22%, malbec 8%, shiraz 2% (probably used for topping); #drinkoz #drinkvictoria #pyrenees #bluepyrenees #estateblend 14%, AUD 40 #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #malbec #shiraz ; long ager too, think decades; a wine one must try; tasted alongside Segla 2005 from Margaux in magnum; similar tannins just drier! — 5 years ago
