Tyrrell’s Rufus Stone Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2012tyrrellsWines_RufusStone_CabernetSauvignonMalbec

Style: Full-bodied red

Region: McLaren Vale, SA

Tasting note: A brooding wine with a great depth of colour. The nose needs to hang in the glass for a while to pick up the tones of plum and prunes. The palate consists of plum, blackberry and cassis. Typical of these two varieties, the palate has nice texture and finishes with grainy tannins.

Final Say: A classic wine from Tyrrell’s, certainly one that will benefit from laying down for a couple of years. $19.99 a bottle.

Score: 18 out of 20
