Tapanappa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2012

Classic Aussie blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz (64/36% respectively); oak is all French, of which 70% is new.

And what oak it is: Lavish , providing a blanket around a depth of black fruit; brawny, muscular. Aniseed, choc-mint, lavish. The oak is unsubtle, tannin is firm and the length long. 

It's a wine of significance, unsubtle - almost brutish in its composition. Qualities that you'd expect to see it live long. A, no doubt conservative view on this wine for now, 91+ 

Tasted on: Thursday 19th May, a Root to Flower day
