Yering-Staion-Cab-Sav-2013Yering Station Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Yarra Valley, AUD $40

The colour is deep red/purple, the bouquet cedar, blackberry and other dark fruits of spot-on ripeness, backed by well-judged, stylish oak. It’s intense and elegant in the mouth, finishing dry and savoury, with medium to full body, fine tannins and great length. A classic Yarra cabernet. (Screwcap)
