Yalumba The Caley Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz 2012

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  537316

This is the first vintage of Yalumba's new Cabernet/Shiraz-based flagship wine. Deep garnet in color, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz The Caley offers expressive baked blackberries, cherry cordial and blackcurrant jelly notes with suggestions of Chinese five spice, cedar and anise. The palate is built like a brick house, delivering a solid structure of firm, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness to support and complement the voluptuous, full-bodied flesh. It offers a very long, layered finish with lingering exotic spice and black berry preserves notes. Give it 3-5 more years in bottle and drink it over the next twenty-five. Drink Date: 2020-2045. Score - 96+. (Lisa Perrotti-Brown, MW, robertparker.com, June 30, 2017 )
