Limestone Track Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Limestone Track is another small producer from the pretty rolling hills between Daylesford and Castlemaine, not far from Mt Franklin.  Their 2010 cabernet sauvignon caught my eye while travelling through the region.  It's a purple coloured wine, that is bright with a pronounced depth of colour.  Probably a bit darker than I was expecting, but 2010 is a strong year.  

Aromatically, the wine is quite restrained, offering up notes of cedar, black olives, dusty blackcurrants, cloves and a touch of char.  The palate is dry, with between medium and high acidity, dusty tannins, and retiscent flavours of blackcurrant, ribena, a touch of sweet cassis, tea leaves and char.  The palate has moderate length for the price - only $20.  Overall, a balanced wine that is enjoyable to drink, if a bit closed/restrained at this point of its life.  Acceptable to Good
