Winemaker's Notes:

Vintage 2009 was an excellent year for red wines in South Australia. Good rainfall was recorded during the 2008 winter and proved invaluable as spring and early summer were one of the driest ever. A wet December was critical for the survival of the vineyards during the summer heat. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines weathered the heat well and were able to ripen in ideal conditions throughout February and March.

The Yalumba Y Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is dark scarlet in color with a purple hue with aromas of crushed blackcurrants, violets and mint leaf are enhanced by hints of dusty French oak, Sichuan pepper and white truffles. This bright and refreshing wine shows classical flavours of mint leaf and blackcurrant with hints of chocolate and very fine tannins parading across the palate, leading to a long and persistent finish.
