Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Y Series Cabernet Sauvignon displays exceptional varietal characters, with aromas of briar, black cherry, mint, eucalypt, and violets. These are complemented by hints of cinnamon, vanilla and chocolate. The palate offers flavours of black cherry and cedar wrapped in a medium bodied frame with velvety tannins. A wine that is ready to be enjoyed now or cellared for two to three years.
