Wine Entry : Yarra Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon 1997 (Australian)


This bottle has been in the cupboard for almost 6-7 years. When opening up the wine, the cock broke and I had to use a tea sieve to get the pieces out of the wine. It was still in a good condition reddish-brown in colour. It was served cold from the fridge. This dampened the aromas, but later as it warmed it exudes the fruity scents embedded within the wine.

Smell : Fruity with plums and blackcurrents and a tinge of oak.

Taste : Medium-light bodied with sour plumy taste and touch of spice.

After-taste : Astingent in the medium finish.

Description at the back of the label :
The wine has a vibrant, crimson-red colour. The aromas are of ripe, berry-blackcurrent fruit perfectly complemented by spice and cedar from 10 months maturation in French and American oak barriques. On the palate, the wine has rich, berry fruit flavours and a lingering finish.
