Yalumba 'The Scribbler'
Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz, 2006
A fabulous new release from Yalumba.
The Scribbler’ pays homage to one of Yalumba’s most renowned wines ‘The Signature’ Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz, made continuously since 1962. ‘The Scribbler’ re-enforces our dedication to this wine style and celebrates its heritage. This wine is full depth red in colour with purple hues, displaying an aroma of brooding Barossa Cabernet with dark berried fruits, hints of mint and leafiness. The palate is full and stylish showing Shiraz sweetness and plumminess, but finishing with long fine tannins. Perfect now, but will certainly cellar over the next 5-10 years. A perfect food match with a roasted rack of lamb.

Quite a roll call. 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Shiraz.
Ripe cassis, plum and black cherry with chocolate, mocha and spice on the nose. It's full, juicy and rich, with dense black and red berry fruit, chocolate and spice, creamy oak, hints of meat and integrated toasty oak. Really dense and juicy with fabulous fruit and ripe tannins. Despite it's immediacy this is a 'proper red' with structure- fruit, acidity and tannins. A great value. Delicious!
