Tahbilk

Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 94 pts James Halliday & 90 pts Wine Spectator

Tasting Notes

1/10/17
Aromatically this starts off with some bay leaf, a shade of black olive tapenade and herbal notes that give way to dark berry fruit. Medium fuller bodied this has good fruit concentration with vibrant dark plum and black currant fruit, lightly minty flavors that are nuanced with savory notes of herb and underbrush complimenting and adding complexity. This displays good staying power and depth without heft, while good underlying acidity gives brightness to the fruit and the varietal’s classic grippy tannins permeates the fruit flavors leading to a dry send off with good length and persistence. This has the structure to age well and is a wine to tame with age or have with something that has good fat content to let help melt the tannins away and reveal the lovely dark fruit at its core.

Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts Wine Spectator 11/30/16
Intense and concentrated, with black walnut overtones and firm, espresso-tinged tannins complementing a mix of savory notes and underbrush and plum flavors. Complex and harmonious on the long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2026. 12,000 cases made.
94 pts James Halliday
Excellent crimson-purple hue; herb and bay leaf announce their presence on the bouquet, blackcurrant quickly following and taking control on the palate. A very successful Tahbilk Cabernet.



Winemaker Notes

Notes of mint and five-spice are evident on a sturdily constructed palate of black olive, herbs and dark fruits alongside fine, ripe tannins that will support the development of additional character and complexity if cellared. Drink Now to 2025+.
