Balnaves of Coonawarra `The Tally` Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 (6 x 750mL), SA.

The 2001 Tally is deep red in colour. A perfumed nose with dense dark tightly woven fruit, liquorice, red and black berries, prunes, with subtle vanillin oak and malty overtones. The palate is solid with rich dark fruit, and good balance, great length and elegance. Great classical Coonawarra vintage.

Drink now and will hold.

Dense colour; saturated black fruits, opulent mouthfeel, but tightened and lengthened by cedary oak and lingering tannins. Rating 96 - James Halliday, Drink to 2021 Australian Wine companion (OCT/2005)
