De Bortoli Melba Lucia Cabernet Sauvignon Sangiovese 2007

This interesting blend of 91% cabernet sauvignon and 9% sangiovese had an aroma of cassis, dark cherries, chalk and bright red fruits. The palate showed around 5 seconds of length, with a few tannins and some cassis notes. Rather similar to a Toscana IGT (which is a compliment) and seemingly unaffected by the frosts that impacted the 2007 Yarra Valley vintage elsewhere. 84 to 85 points.
