Michael Unwin Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

I tried this wine at a café in Ballarat.  With fish too.  I usually like food and wine matching, but on this day I thought stuff it.  I almost fell off the chair with this wine.  The chair was in a sound state, though I didn’t inspect it.  An aroma of blackcurrant and mint (no surprises here for this cool region) wafted from the glass.  The palate though stood out with its very good length, acid backbone and blackcurranty, Bordeaux like, flavour.  Was there a trace of bitterness?  Perhaps, ever so slightly.  But not so much that I wouldn’t go back for more.  88 points (7.3/10)

Price: about $25 (current vintage)
Would I buy it having tasted it?  Yes
