2016 Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz

Author: Gary Walsh
Review Date: Apr 2020

Only 15% Shiraz here, from the Adelaide Hills.

Blackcurrant, peppermint nougat, new leather, aniseed and biscuit spices. It’s bold and curranty, sweet nougat oak and dark raspberry, a meat and sage flavour in there, plush powdery tannin, and some alcohol warmth poking through on a pretty long suede-like tannin finish. It’s still pretty youthful, and likely has more to reveal with appropriate bottle age.
