Goodman Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
Classic Yarra Valley Cabernet. There’s a timelessness to this mode of red, even if it’s slightly uncool in the modern riper Cab world. Cassis, pencils shavings, a vegetal hint and backed by a curranty punch. An understated and classy palate that sits on the edge of ‘just-right’ ripeness, though not for everyone. Fine tannins too. Maybe a little underweight? Will live and provide ‘luncheon claret’ drinking for years. Best drinking: Now to whenever. Will still be chugging along in 15 years time. 17.5/20, 91/100+. 13%, $39. Would I buy it? A glass or two.
