Tintara Cabernet Sauvignon Mclaren Vale 2006

External Review by Fame Wine and Tobacco:

Long-standing classic Tintara from McLaren Vale is a treat, well-structured, enjoyable young or old. In a 2006 vintage, the structure, class and pedigree of a Tintara is plainly self-evident. This Cabernet Sauvignon has a vineyard of aromas, blackcurrant, cassis, mulberries. In the drinking this wine has blackberry, mulberry, and spice, hung on a structure of big chewy tannins and flavors that will develop with cellaring. Even without excessive cellaring there is a persistent length to this wine. This is a big occasion wine after a few years of careful cellaring. This wine is the classic double threat of being drinkable now, and cellaring extremely well to develop complexity in the bottle over time.
