Mike Press Adelaide Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Mike Press represents fantastic value - $150 per dozen anyone?  Well, when you can find the wines that is.  I managed to bag some Shiraz before they sold out and swapped a bottle with a colleague who had bought some of the Cabernet.

Undeniably Cabernet with its leafy, chocolately aroma.  But I was troubled initially by some play-doh like, vanilla oak - though this did improve with some time.

The palate; blackcurrant, cherry and more chocolate.  Quite restrained in the mouth, medium bodied.  Good flow of tannin through the finish.  Just give it a little time to appreciate it.
