Shaw Vineyards Winemakers Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

The Winemakers Selection is the entry level range for Shaw Vineyards, and this Cabernet Sauvignon certainly represents terrific value for $16.

Shaw was established in 1998 and is located in Murrumbateman which is in the Canberra district.

Straight up you get hit with black fruits, some peppermint and even slight aromas of hibiscus flowers in syrup. Flavours are plentiful with good depth. They evolved nicely over a few hours but they did stop a little short on the palate.

A very handy mid-week drop which will cellar for up to another five years.
