A good Yarra Valley cabernet: Rob Hall Cabernets Yarra Valley 2016

I recently dropped into the Yarra Valley diary in Yering (http://yvd.com.au) and there was such an interesting range of wines from a series of up-and-coming local producers, I wanted to buy them all. This is a good cabernet blend from Rob Hall. Too few seem to be trying their hand at cabernet blends in the Yarra Valley, which is I think a pity.  Rob Hall’s 2016 has restrained but enveloping aromas of spice and blackcurrant. The palate is medium bodied, the acidity quite fresh and the finish just slightly bitter, but not unpleasantly so. The tannins are quite tame for cabernet and the wine presents as in balance. Rating: Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $27.
