Flametree Embers Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Margaret River, WA

$18 from Vintage Cellars (Albert Park). Intense black ruby colour , expressive aromas of tobacco leaf, mulberry, blackcurrant and cedar. A dry, med+ bodied wine with fine grained tannins and moderate acidity. Blackcurrant and mulberry flavours dominant with residual cigar taste. 14.2% alc. Not a bad wine, though the acidity could have done with a notch up, and it lacks a bit more weight on the finish to match the initial hit. Drink now – 2014. 88-89/100. Worked well with a cajun-spiced ocra and pork mince stir-fry.
