Top Aussie red

Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon, Nagambie Lakes 2009 $23

An excellent vintage for this perennial good-value red. It’s relatively fruit-driven and has very good structure, promising aging potential. Raspberry and herb aromas; a suggestion of cherry eau-de-vie. Good weight and ample fruit, finishing with abundant firm tannins. Will build more complexity with age. Now to 2029. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)
