I am becoming an Aussie Cab snob. I know everyone loves the eucalyptus-riddled Coonawarra samples but I fell for this Margaret River sample in class last night. The official WSET 3 analyzation (slightly shortened):
Appearance: ruby with slow thick tears
Nose: medium plus intensity, black cherry, currants, pyrazines (green pepper), vanilla, cedar, sweet spice. Palate: dry, med + acid, med + tannin, med alcohol, med + intensity, black currants, vanilla, pepper, cloves, cedar, med + finish ...tis VERY good

Shy nose at first. Faint dark fruit and chocolate notes. Took an hour to open, but then started to sing. Perfect balance of tannin and round cabernet fruit. Drinking but still young. Will integrate and develop complexity over the next 5-8yrs. Very good.
