Tasting Notes

96 points Robert Parker: "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. This cuvee should drink well for 15 years." (10/06) 93(+?) points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "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." ( Jul/Aug 06) 91 points Wine Spectator: "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. Drink now through 2012." (09/06)
