Yering Station Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Yering Station have hit a seam of form with their cabernet sauvignons.  I thought the 2011 was pretty good, and this 2012 is better still.  It has classic cabernet aromatics of clove, blackcurrant and cedar.  The palate sees a medium length finish and flavours of blackcurrant and cedar.  It has balance, poise, elegance and a satisfying depth of flavour.   This is Yarra Valley cabernet is it can be, neither rustic, overdone, underdone nor green.  Ready to drink now, it's probably a five to six year proposition for the cellar and one to look out for.

Rating: Good to Very Good, Abv: 14%, Price: $38, Source: sample, Vendors:, Website:, Tasted: 2014
