2016 Yarra Yering ‘Dry Red No.1’ Yarra Valley Cabernet Blend
As the numbers go 'No. 1' is the one that sells out the quickest. Last year James Halliday gave it 99/100 and this 2016, 97/100. The Bordeaux blend is made up of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot in smaller parts. It is beautiful in its youth with an enviable aging capability. Classic aromas of blackberry and cassis with a hint of fresh herbs. The palate is layered with blackberry, mulberry and earthy edges.
