Gaelic Cemetery Vineyard Cabernet Malbec 2010

aelicNow this is something special, for those seeking bold, Australian red wines, at a prime time, from low yielding vines, in a region that does these varieties in a blend seemingly well. I wouldn’t drink a load of this, but geez, it’s impressive no matter what your proclivities are.

Glorious perfume of blue berry fruits, Indian ink, black olives, dark chocolate, faint herbal notes. It’s soupy, generous and flows impressively and with authority through the palate. Loads of flavour, formidable¬†concentration, yet freshness of feel and a lick of savoury, secondary dried fruits and spice helps impress in the complexity stakes. Tannins pull the wine in at a lovely, lazy pace. The finish is a touch muddled with dusty, leathery notes, but overall, such satisfaction in this bold, rich, deep wine.
