2008 Whalebone Cab Shiraz – beautifully executed.

Author: Campbell Mattinson
Source: winefront.com.au
Review Date: Nov 2012

The traditional Australian red blend, beautifully executed. 70 percent cabernet sauvignon, 30 percent shiraz. All French oak.

Has a bit of a swagger to it, this wine. It’s rich, chocolatey, grainy and substantial. Flavours are mostly in the blackberry/plum area though there’s eucalypt here and well-integrated smoky/spicy oak. Tannin curls out and around the finish. Noticeably dry, almost sinewy, despite its richness. As with the merlot cabernet franc blend, this will age long term.
