Shingleback Cabernet Sauvignon Mclaren Vale D Block Reserve 2005

Member Review by cgplayer9:

On the nose, some black and red fruits but also a bit of mustiness. On the palate, vibrant mix of blackberry and cherry cola with hints of leather. Moderate fruity finish with some white pepper. Tannins very fine, but good acidity, oak very subtle - only the slightest hint of smokiness. Very tasty wine!

Shingleback Wine:
The McLaren Vale region is located 45 minutes south of Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. The area is bound to the south by the Sellick's Hill range, extends east to Clarendon, reaches to the north just beyond Reynella and is bordered on the west by the waters of the Gulf St. Vincent. First planted with vines in the 1830's, McLaren Vale is best known today for its internationally acclaimed rich, flavourful Shiraz.

A strong mint character runs through this solid, cherry-inflected Cabernet, the flavors mingling effectively against a burr of tannin. Best from 2010 through 2013. 250 cases made. -HS ** SOLD OUT **
