So smoky on the nose with a moderate dose of toasty oak spice layered under some leafy and bright black currant fruit.On entry this is really attractive with brilliant red and black fruits that have a slight jammy edge to them yet they remain clear and bright on the palate. This is so finely polished but still with cut and great clarity in the mouth. The knock here might be that this is a little simple but it’s so fresh and filled with everso slightly chewy fresh fruit that it really is a joy to drink. 91pts

Deep garnet-purple colored 2008 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz reveals evolving notes of warm mulberries plum preserve creme de cassis and black olives with hints of sandalwood spice box and tobacco. Medium to full bodied and elegantly fruited in the mouth it's very well structured with a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and good line of acid finishing long and layered. It's just beginning to enter its drinking window and should cellar gracefully to 2021+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Fresh vital and beautifully focused offering vibrant currant and plum fruit on a polished frame lingering easily against superfine tannins. Drink now through 2017.

Winemaker's Notes:

This is an exciting release from Yalumba! The aroma shows characters of sweet spices, cedary earth and tar, and dusty berries. The palate has a rich Cabernet Sauvignon mouthfeel with dark, curranty, shiraz mid palate tannins. The finish is very persistant combining great power with elegance and, of course, although it's delicious now it has real ageing potential for the patient among us.
