Yalumba The Signature 2001
|Region||Australia, South Australia, Barossa|
Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2001 is a dense, plummy red that shows all the hallmarks of a classic 'Signature' wine. Rich red currants, plums and berries abound on the nose with tobacco and black pepper, creamy mocha chocolates, with hints of mint and anise. The palate initially fills out with dark berry and forest fruit flavours, into a fleshy mid-palate surrounded with firm yet fine tannins. The wine finishes with a mouthful of layered lingering tannins.
Firm, with grippy tannins around a core of cedary berry, licorice and herb flavors, which linger nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Best from 2007 through 2012. 1,160 cases imported.
