Yalumba The Signature 2013
*This item may have limited availability - please call ahead to have us check stock!*
Almost blood red, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon & Shiraz in motion, changing and shifting from red scents of currants and cranberries to the black fruits of plum compote and black cherries, before a touch of cedar, leafy herbs and powdery black spices freshen the finish. The wine has a coolness that belies its power. The expression is as restrained as it is muscular. Richly layered, the fruit completes the structure. Underneath there's an umami earthiness, like scents of camping in the woods. Impeccably balanced. Savour with a rosemary pepper beef rib roast with porcini jus.

Wine EnthusiastA classic blend of Cabernet and Shiraz, this is cedary and complex upon opening, easily mixing cassis, plum and blackberry with vanilla and baking spices. On the palate, it's dense and concentrated yet slightly reserved, suggesting rather than screaming its potential. A long, mocha-tinged finish wraps things up, combining dusty tannins with mouthwatering acids. Drink 2020-2030+.
Wine AdvocateStill youthful and closed, the 2013 The Signature Cabernet Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color with notes of cassis, cedar, a touch of herbs and warm blackberries. The wine has a firm structure, while being grainy with a racy line going through it. It has great length and should age beautifully!
Wine SpectatorThere's a note of grace to the wild strawberry and cherry flavors, with tobacco, black pepper and red licorice notes, and firm, gripping tannins. Plenty of follow-through on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 400 cases imported.
