Balnaves The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

The challenging 2009 vintage disqualified all but one parcel of fruit for The Tally: that which forms the linear vector of its honed backbone. The result is the most focused, precise and restrained Tally, that time may prove to rank among the finest and longest-lived. $73 at Kemeny’s, $80 at WineStar.
