Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1 2008

Yarra Yering continues to be my pick of producers from the Yarra Valley.  Their 2008 cabernet had an aroma of taught oak, with a touch of capsicum, reminding me initially ever so slightly of a Leeuwin Estate: a cabernet I have generally struggled with.  However, the palate shone, with layered opulence and length.  An excellent wine that I look forward to tasting again.  90 points.

Price: $75
