2018 Bobar Cabaret
I believe the mix is cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot in an 80/20 split respectively (some pinot noir makes its way in too, allegedly).
You’ll get scents of faint cherry, light raspberry, a whiff of tomato and bay leaf, just the faintest old spice cupboard note too. Succulent, crisp texture, flighty red cherry flavours, a splash of blood orange, a touch of bitterness in the best possible way and a long trail of cool, refreshing acidity follows. It’s no rosé but it’s a couple of evolutionary steps up the adaptation curve. This is excellent to drink, vibrant and bright, shapely and, curiously, quite refined in its feel. A great expression of Yarra red wine here. So worthy. Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
