Barking Up The Right tree

After the Yakka Jack I have been bypassing the other bottles
when I visit the cellar...finally decided to 'risk' it..
taking the one with the least alcohol...13.5%

The Islander Estate

Bark Hut Road 2003

Kangaroo Island, South Australia

68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Syrah, 5% Viognier

Dark garnet colour; sweetish aroma of the Shiraz and some cedar from the Cabernet..and it works..some cherry and a little vanilla oak..this all takes you into a similar flavour..the ripe Shiraz gives the feeling of sweet tannins..some alcohol but held fruits...I went back to this which is always a good sign..nicely put together..see..I didn't moan this time!

Points 16.5
