The Yard Riversdale Vineyard Frankland River Cabernet Sauvignon

Another great from the inimitable Larry Cherubino, a cabernet of impressive fruit definition, seamless confidence and characterful intensity. It’s a spicy and savoury style of textbook varietal hallmarks, with a fragrant violet note, roast capsicum, cedar, tobacco and a backbone of dark chocolate oak. Tannins are confident and finely textured, supporting an impressively even finish of lively fruit definition and seamless confidence, promising a great future. $32 at Cellar d’Or.
