Gatt Cabernet Sauvignon, Eden Valley 2009 $55
A stylish Barossa cabernet with the beginnings of bottle-age showing, and some roasting-pan aromas emerging. The bouquet is led by raspberry and mint while the tannin structure is tight and sinewy, with very good line and length. Already showing attractive complexity. (13.8 per cent alcohol; screw cap) Score: 95 ★★★★★ – view on huonhooke.com
Ageing: Drink for 16 years.
Food idea: Try it with moussaka.
Stockists: Five Way Cellars, Paddington (NSW); Harry & Frankie, Port Melbourne (Vic.)
