Top Aussie red

Mitchell Sevenhill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley 2006 $26

With the benefit of a little bottle-age, this is an excellent cabernet and will be long-lived. The colour is still youthfully red-purple; the bouquet suggests blackberry and black-olive. The full-bodied palate has a lot of classically firm Clare tannins, which demand protein-rich food. Drink now to 2036. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 92/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: rare roast beef
