Indulge Yourself

Taylors The Visionary Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley 2009 $120

This statuesque new cabernet honours the founder, Bill Taylor. It’s dark, dense red-purplehued with a voluminous bouquet of roasting-pan aromas, mocha, dark chocolate and toasty oak, all beautifully melded. Ultra-rich, concentrated and oaky, with smooth fleshy texture, slinky tannins and effortless balance. A wine to impress. Now to 2034. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 95/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: roast beef with demiglaze

Stockists: The Wine Society,
