Yalumba Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Eden Valley the Reserve 2002
This stunning Shiraz is one of the greatest wines made in South Australia. The 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz The Reserve (a blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon and 26% Shiraz aged 20 months in 70% new French hogsheads and 30% in neutral French wood) boasts superb intensity, richness, body, and power. Smoky, truffle-like aromas intermixed with blackberries, cassis, burning embers, charcoal, and licorice soar from the glass of this opaque purple-colored, full-throttle, meaty, super-rich and concentrated wine. Superbly well-balanced, it is a candidate for 20-30 years of aging. ROBERT PARKER
Mint, well-balanced but not too interesting to me. Slightly tannic.
dark, deep, rustic, aromas. Complex palate complete with dark jam, currants, black and blue berries, really awesome!
This is a beautiful red wine. Lots of cherries and dried fruit on the nose, with a beautifully smooth finish.
Rich dark color. Hints of blackberries and chocolate. Beautiful nose
The scribbled 2009.
Rich dark fruit on the nose, slightly tannic with complex yet balanced flavors. Lovely wine with a meal or on its own
