Winemaker's Notes:

Yalumba 'The Scribbler' is a wine with excellent depth of color, richness and complexity, displaying an aroma of riper style Barossa Cabernet Shiraz. It shows dark plum fruits, black cherry, dark tobacco and hints of leafiness all with the dark undertones of mocha oak. It is a well structured wine with a full and robust palate, displaying the classic red berry fruit flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon and the sweet mid-palate of Shiraz. ‘The Scribbler' finishes with tannins that have a black olive and red spice tone. This wine is perfect to enjoy now, but will certainly cellar over the next 5-10 years.
