Evans & Tate Redbrook Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

I was really looking forward to getting amongst this, but it just didn't light my fire.

A great introduction of red fruits, dry herbs and bay leaf on the nose but the fruit on the palate was not as generous as I would have hoped.

Sure the fruit was good and was dominated by blackberries plus a sweetish edge from the oak, however, the fruit ran off the palate quicker than I expected. I was expecting a bigger, punchier wine. Some undergrowth type flavours lurked on exit though with some chalky/dusty tannins.

I can see the attractive features of the wine which many people I know would lean towards. A little more oomph factor on the palate and I would have been all over it.
