Long Gully Estate Cabernet

In the spirit of posting notes on all wines that I review, this wine was tasted out of a 187ml bottle, with no vintage given, and a recommendation on the back that the wine shouldn't be kept long.  Rather refreshing honesty, I thought!   To my surprise, this wine was really quite pleasant.  The wine had an aroma of blackberries, and a touch of oak.  The palate had some pleasant length and was enjoyable.  The second bottle appeared to be from a different vintage, and had much more evident oak treatment, so I preferred the first wine.  Nonetheless, the wines were sufficiently interesting that I'll try to source a few normal bottles from this producer, and see if it's a new source of affordable and decent Yarra Valley cabernet, as it appears to be. 84 points.
