Five out of five – 2009 Whalebone Cabernet Shiraz

Author: Ben Thomas
Source: The Weekly Review
Review Date: Feb 2014

Tapanappa is a venture between Brian Croser, Bollinger and Chateau Lynch Bages in Bordeaux. Six hundred and eighty dozen of this 84/16 blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz were made. It drinks beautifully now, with layered flavours of cassis, violets, floral blueberry, blackberry, mulberry and cedar-like oak. Medium-bodied, and spritely through the mouth, there’s rich, fruit-driven concentration. Fine-grained tannins provide a firm grip, and loads of length.
