De Bortoli Yarra Valley Melba Reserve Cabernet Blend

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Polished and elegant, this savoury, rustic cabernet blend has an earthy, faintly herbal bouquet of small dark berries, plums, tobacco leaves and sweet floral notes assertively backed by tight-grained cedary oak. Long and supple, it's stylish and measured, with a lively core of fruit and plenty of developed, leathery and meaty complexity framed by fine-grained tannins.

Firm, tight-knit and astringent, with a briary, smoky bouquet of dark plums and cassis, cedar and vanilla. Supported by a drying spine of kernelly tannins, it's youthful and a little raw, with a deep, palate-staining presence of dark berries and plums finishing tight, focused, and with a lingering core of fruit. Remarkably, no smoke taint at time of tasting!
