Wine of the Week AU

Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2013, Barossa Valley, AUD $60

A deeply concentrated wine, surprisingly quiet but at the same time bold. The cabernet component asserts itself throughout the wine. Dark berries with crushed herb accents. Prominent tannin. The label pays tribute to Yalumba’s ‘Director of Wine’ Andrew Murphy. (Cork)
