expert reviews about
2013 Yalumba The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 6 Pack
James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
The alcohol may be modest, but that's where this line of enquiry ends. It's powerful, it wears a Driza-Bone and RM Williams boots, and isn't prepared to debate this characterisation at all. We could go down to the pub and, suitably fortified, settle things out the back.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2013 Vintage) says
Deep garnet-purple, the 2013 The Signature (Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz) has very youthful, pure black fruits aromas with a pronounced black plum and black currant nose with underlying pepper, Provence herbs and licorice suggestions. Big, dense and profoundly expressive in the mouth, the palate is firmly constructed with chewy tannins and great persistence. This is just starting to open, so forget it for 3-5 years and drink it over the next twenty.
James Suckling (2013 Vintage) says
Looking very composed, tidy and tightly packed. Raspberry, cassis and blueberry, plus a leafy edge with graphite. The palate's faultless, and tannins are a feature. Really terrific length and depth with lots of potential. Best from 2018 for more than a decade.
