Inviting deep inky appearance with a nose driven by black fruits such as black berries and black cherries. Full bodied, powerful wine with cherry liqueur and vanilla flavours. Dry tannic firm finish. Requires more bottle age, say 10 to 15 years. Comes from a big warm vintage.
Yering Station Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2019, Yarra Valley, Vic
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.
