Tahbilk Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

I don't usually expect much from cabernet at the $15 price point, but Tahbilk's 2006 cabernet sauvignon proved an exception with an aroma of dusty fruit, and a similar palate with a bit of length and acidity.  For $14, it's very good.  83 to 84 points.

Abv: 14.5%
Price: $14

  1. Glad to see you've discovered the joys of Tahbilk's reds and personally I think you couldn't of done it at a better time. Their 2006 releases of shiraz and cabernet would be very close to the best pair of $14 reds available in Australia today.

    Great stuff Sean! Now, to just tuck some in the cellar and wait....
