2016 Tapanappa Whalebone Vineyard Cabernet Shiraz

Author: Nick Butler
Source: The Real Review
Review Date: Mar 2020

Black olive hue with red edges. So many moving parts to the bouquet: cedar, dark soy, tapenade, mixed red and black berries, oak is definitely firm. An opulent first sip; ripe blackberries and raspberries meld beautifully with licorice and softer plum notes. Time in the bottle has softened some edges. This is right in the slot – tannins in harmony. Sensational wine. 2020 – 2035
