Balnaves The Tally Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Balnaves seems to be a producer where their top wine truly is a top wine, but then trails off a bit after that.  The Tally is a top, serious wine.  An opulent aroma of good dark fruits, and a palate with a similar opulent mouthfeel, very good length and some tannins too.  An excellent wine, with its high alcohol in balance.  It is as good as when I tried it in June last year, and gave it the same score (which I reached having forgotten about the previous review, which is always nice).  90 points.

Price: $90
