Oakridge Local Vineyard Series Oakridge Vineyard Yarra Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Oh, how I love 2010 Yarra reds! The varietal integrity on show here is bang-on. Fragrant violets, blackcurrants, capsicum, freshly picked tomatoes, tobacco leaf and high cocoa dark chocolate – you name it, this wine has it. Everything is set against an expertly crafted backbone of superfine, firmly structured tannins of dusty, graphite-like precision. At a refreshing 12.6% alcohol, it never deviates from its medium-bodied frame, charged with tangy acidity. $29 at epiQure.
