Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz

Signature is on a dazzling trajectory, taking one of the Barossa’s most revered labels to new heights. 2006 represents its most exacting expression to date, though sneak-previews of 2010 on the show circuit suggest that all before it will be eclipsed in a dramatic spectacle. 2008 is an altogether different expression, a more generous Signature, with glossy, plush black fruits on parade, though never losing sight of the vibrant confidence that defines the new face of this blend. Cabernet takes command, donating brilliant intensity of blackcurrant fruit and taut definition of tannin structure, framed in dark chocolate oak. $50 at Discount Wines.
