Tahbilk Old Vines Cabernet Shiraz 2010


Old Vine it says, with an average vine age of 34 years, I guess that makes me above average.

To the wine: creamy fresh oak sits front and square of rich dense fruit. Has an almost freshly lacquered presentation to it. Minty and dark fruited.

Cassis abounds, fairly concentrated. Tannin is fine, mingling with a complex mix of toasty notes and nicely presented acid that punctuates the palate. Freshens things up, provides a nice liveliness to the wine. But I kept getting drawn back to the fruit, very good fruit quality here, with sensible oak in support. 92
