Reviews for 2008 Yalumba The Signature (Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz)

JH 95
James Halliday - James Halliday, February 2012
Good colour for age; Yalumba moved before the heatwave in picking its best grapes; this is a powerful, full-bodied wine with black fruits, licorice and tannins (plus oak) all clamouring to be heard.

Always one of Yalumba’s top offerings, the 2008 doesn’t show any of the vintage’s ill effects.

Always one of Yalumba’s top offerings, the 2008 doesn’t show any of the vintage’s ill effects. Instead, this blend of Cabernet (56%) and Shiraz (44%) offers a rich, open-knit mouthful of chocomint and dark plum, underscored by savory, meaty notes. This is full bodied and supple, yet muscular, with at least a decade of cellaring potential.

Fresh, vital and beautifully focused, offering vibrant currant and plum fruit on a polished frame, lingering easily against superfine tannins. Drink now through 2017. 300 cases imported. –HS

Deep garnet-purple colored, 2008 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz reveals evolving notes of warm mulberries, plum preserve, creme de cassis and black olives with hints of sandalwood, spice box and tobacco. Medium to full bodied and elegantly fruited in the mouth, it’s very well structured with a medium to firm level of grainy tannins and good line of acid, finishing long and layered. It’s just beginning to enter its drinking window and should cellar gracefully to 2021+. - LPB
