This is Yalumba's most premium wine, and it's easy to see why. It blends Coonawarra Cabernet with Barossa Shiraz for a classy, complex wine that could be drunk over the next few years with lengthy time in decanter, but will really blossom over the next decade or even two. Once exposed to oxygen, it starts to reveal a plethora of enticing aromas, from bushels of red and black fruits to dark chocolate and coffee beans; from iodine to dried mint and tobacco. The palate is big yet focused, seamlessly melding the forest fruit with the earthy, dried herbal notes and oak spice, all supported by powerful, leathery tannins. Drink 2021–2039. Christina Pickard

What Is Blind Tasting?

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
