2018 Yarra Yering Dry Red No.1
Cabernet sauvignon 70%, Merlot 18%, Malbec 8%, Petit verdot 4%. Fruit power is the first impression, dark berry fruits and some sage adding a background herbal lift. Oak spice is evident but all in balance with the fruit. The palate shows power and restraint at the same time, the iron fist in a velvet glove.
