Attollo Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

First of 3 Aussie Cabernets tasted together, single-blind (so wines known but identities masked).  Notes pretty much as taken.

Tomato leaf, bay, rustic herbal/ bushy notes.  Speaking to me of Margaret River with a little capsicum thrown in.  Over time shows integrated chocolate and cedary notes, with the background leafiness a consistent theme.

Medium-to-full bodied, peppery-spice with mulberry and plum against some tobacco notes. Tannin is firm, emery-board grain with excellent persistence of flavour if a little mono-dimensional at this early juncture.  Good structure, will age well.

100% Organic, unfined, unfiltered with a natural ferment.  Contains 10% 2011 Cabernet Franc.  91+ - Very Good
