Tahbilk Eric Steven Purbrick Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Nagambie Lakes, Victoria

by | Jan 28, 2022

Cedar and earthy driven nose with a leafy note. Appealing primary sweet cassis fruits and sandlewood on the front palate. Dry well balanced medium bodied with integrated ripe tannins producing a long long finish. Outstanding Cabernet. I feel Tahbilk do better Cabernet than Shiraz. Drinking well now but will age for another 10 years.

Ratings Key:

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)

Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.

Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)

A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.

Recommended (Score range 89-91)

An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
