The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food section Huon Hooke features Ann's Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


UMAMU Estate Ann's Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Score: 93

UMAMU make a point of releasing all their wines, even whites, with extra age. This has mellowed into a wine of uncanny Bordeaux-like character. Warm-earth, smoky overtones intermingle with raspberry and rhubarb notes. It's medium bodied, smoothly rounded and texturally appealing, with ample fleshy extract. (Screw-cap; 13.8 per cent alcohol)

Ageing? Best now to six years.
