Ranked #5 of 63 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz from Coonawarra
Deep red/purple colour; the bouquet spicy and berry fruited, clean and fresh and vibrant. Lively and bright. A wonderfully tight, elegant, refined wine of tremendous length and precision. I will enjoy watching how this develops with time.
Drink: 2016 to 2044

Deep garnet with a hint of purple, the 2012 V & A Lane Select Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz is beautifully scented of blackberry coulis and crème de cassis with suggestions of baking spices, lavender, cloves and vanilla. Medium bodied and elegantly fruited on the palate, the soft, silky tannins and refreshing acidity nicely support the intense flavors, finishing with excellent persistence.
