2010 Dalwhinnie "Moonambel" Cabernet Sauvignon Pyrenees Victoria
Classic Dalwhinnie style with abundant aromas, fruit on the fore-palate likewise; tightens up on the finish with tannin grip that will relax as the years go by.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Moonamble Cabernet Sauvignon offers a nose of cassis, wild blueberries, toasty oak and yeast extract with subtle suggestions of pencil lead and chocolate. Full-bodied with a nice backbone of medium to firm, grainy tannins and very crisp acidity, it has a long savory finish. Delicious in this youthful stage, it should develop gracefully and drink to 2022+. 92+ (LPB)
The winery's tasting note: "Vibrant dark purple-black. A stunning varietal bouquet. Initial aromas of cedar, camphor, mint and violets. The overall impression is of ripe pure Cabernet Sauvignon blended with rich dark chocolate. The initial mouth-feel is concentrated with luscious full, rich fruits. The mid palate is sweet blackberry fruit followed by fine sandlewood grainy tannins. The flavour profile of dark berry fruit are persistent. A very powerful and beautifully structured wine. It has the elegance to drink after a few years of bottle age and will keep for 15 years plus with the correct cellaring conditions."
