96 Rymill, Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

A delicate gift from what some consider the most Bordelais of Australian climates, the 96 Rymill is aging gracefully. The wet earthy smell eases into a lightly oaky palate that expresses good purity and reservation. This is a passive wine that, despite its strong notes of leather and thimbles of grapey fruit, seems to have some unrealized goal in mind as it flows from flavor to flavor before stealthily drifting away.
