2012 Yalumba The Cigar Cabernet Sauvignon

I don’t think it is necessary to go into the history of Yalumba.  I could mention they are still family owned, been around for 160 years and now into the 5th generation but you would already know that I’m sure.  You would also know they make great wines through many different price ranges.

Here is one of those wines, at a great price, you really need to know about.

I’m not going to go on too much about this wine because when you try it, and you will, it will speak for itself.  Just put the word ‘intense’ in front of words such as nose, palate, fruit and finish.  That will give you an idea of what this wine is all about.

As for how long this wine lingers on your palate, think ‘Hey Jude’ by the Beatles.  It goes on just as long, fades as slowly and is as memorable (you’re singing it in your head or googling it now I bet).

I’ve said it before (on social media) and I’ll say it again, if you don’t have some, buy some. If you already have some, buy more.  At less than $25, to say it is great value for money seems ridiculous.

Region: Coonawarra, SA     Price: Around $25 (retail)     Source: Wine Show box purchase

    Interesting review Tony! The Cigar is perhaps my least favourite of Yalumba’s range (that I’ve tried) but, that doesn’t stop it from being good value. Cheers!
