    ($45) Inky ruby. Dense, powerful nose offers redcurrant liqueur, cherry preserves, licorice, tobacco, saddle leather and dried rose. Sweet, supple and silky, with red and dark berry flavors expanding to saturate the palate. The combination of concentrated sweetness and precision here is really impressive. A serious, complex, deep red blend with excellent potential for cellaring.

    Bright and generous, a lively mouthful of red berry, cherry and black pepper that gets meaty and rich as the finish sails on and on. Tannins are well-integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

    The 2002 The Signature (56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Shiraz) was given the same upbringing as its young sibling, but 2002 is a better vintage for Yalumba. The 2002 exhibits smoky, blackberry, incense, charcoal, and floral characteristics along with tremendous glycerin, richness, purity, and teeth-staining levels of extract. Remarkably, there are no hard edges, and the acidity, tannin, and alcohol are beautifully integrated.

    A consistently good wine and drinking well now. I don't think it will get much better, as the tannins are pretty well absorbed. Friends who avoid Australian reds really liked this. Smoother than most of its shiraz brethren.
