Yalumba The Scribbler 2010

There's something inherently comforting about a "Great Aussie Red", and this example from Yalumba shows its Cabernet (57%) dominant composition with plum, mulberry and spice on approach.  

Good Cabernet structure on its medium bodied frame, charry oak and Shiraz generosity.  Initially a little raw, twiggy tannin resolves a little over time and that line of spice is the gift that keeps on giving.  Would love to see how it mellows - at the price a likely candidate to bob a few away for some time in solitary.  91 - Very Good

Tasted on: Sunday 2nd December, a Flower Day
