Expert Reviews

A firm, savoury wine, with elements of briar and cassis on the quite long, tannic and even finish. James Halliday Wine Companion 2009

89 Points "A dusty, minty and cedary blend whose lively, fresh presence of small red and black berries, plums and creamy vanilla oak are supported by fine grained chalky tannins. It’s long and polished, elegant and restrained, with lingering nuances of dark fruits and fresh acids." Jeremy Oliver Wine Annual 2009, Jeremy Oliver (Australia), October 2008

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

This wine is a deep ruby colour, with fresh purple tints.

Aroma

It displays classic black fruit and forest floor varietal characters complemented by soft, mocha oak flavours. x

Palate

The long, fruit driven palate and firm, ripe tannins make this an ideal wine for drinking now or for aging for two to three years.

Grapes for the Taltarni Three Monks Cabernet Merlot 2006 were sourced entirely from Taltarni’s Pyrenees vineyard. 2006 was a dry, warm vintage with lower yields producing ripe, concentrated fruit that was harvested two weeks earlier than expected. Cabernet and Merlot are classic blending partners with the Cabernet providing length and structure and the Merlot adding softness and midpalate weight. A small amount of Petit Verdot has been included for added richness and texture.
