Brumfield Stone Oak Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

This wine from a likeable tiny producer in the Yarra Valley had an aroma of light oak and elegant fruit, and a palate which was initially slightly plain with a touch of spritz, but settled down to reveal some plainish restrained fruit.  On day 2, I thought the wine better, with a more elegant palate and cedary notes coming through.  Ok.  81 points.
