Deep crimson in colour. Full, intense aromas of blueberries, violets, Satsuma plum, briar and nuances of French oak. The palate is rich and vibrant, bursting with fresh and intense red and blue fruits. Structured and full, the mid palate is textured with tannins that are fine and long. This Cabernet is made to drink now, but it will continue to open and improve, showing its heritage with short to mid-term cellaring.

For more than 30 years Yalumba has made wines of excellence with grapes from this vineyard, earning its place in the inner Sanctum of Coonawarra.
