Yalumba Y Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

If there's one variety in the Y Series that hasn't clicked with me it's been the Cabernet. This is a simple drink, and let's face it, for the money it's ok but then I'd lean to other reds in the range given the choice.

Leafy, capsicum, blackberry, mint and chocolate - the usual suspects appear. Delivery is thin though and not offering much intrigue. It just simple. Oak is a little chunky and the finish is drying and saliva sapping.

Give me the Tempranillo any day.

Drink short term.

Good.
