Yalumba Y Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||Australia, South Australia|
#7 TOP 100 BEST BUY 2020. Yalumba’s everyday reds tend to have a brightness and approachability about them, and this latest Cab doesn’t disappoint. The nose is a lovely combo of currant and red berry backed by graphite, eucalyptus and large helpings of spice. It’s bone-dry and cinched by raspy tannins, the fruit taking a back seat to layers of texture and tannin. It’s an excellent intro to South Aussie Cabernet. Drink now–2028.
This has gently leafy aromas with cassis and redcurrants that are very true to variety. There’s quite a powerful palate here with a surge of blackcurrant and some bell-pepper flavor. Fine, soft texture. Sourced 100% from Wrattonbully.
Decidedly savory, with bold rosemary and sage accents to the dense cassis and blackberry flavors at the core, leaning into peppery, cedary nuances on the finish, where the tannins firm up. Drink now through 2028. 25,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
