Balnaves 2010 The Tally Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Looking for a perfect present for Father's Day? Look no further. This was one of my favourite wines from the recent Coonawarra Roadshow, a stunning cabernet sauvignon from one of the region's best producers that is only just starting to get into its stride and would be a welcome addition to any connoisseur's cellar. This is a big, assertive wine with mouth-puckering tannins in its youth but is also wonderfully varietal and well balanced with dark cassis fruit flavours to the fore along with black chocolate notes and licorice/black olive hints. If you like wines with structure and commanding presence then you'll enjoy this. One of Australia's great cabernets beyond any doubt. $90.
