    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Yalumba Signature 2006 is a very deep dark red with generous sweet dark chocolate and warm fig, blackcurrant and cedary spices on the nose. The palate is broad shouldered, intense and concentrated with lingering red and black currant notes. Young and tight, this wine will reveal an elegance and silky refinement on the palate given time. Perfect with braised lamb shanks.

    Critical Acclaim:

    While the FDR1A is all about power, The Signature provides a journey based on grace, elegance and purity; fresh, vibrant and completely unevolved, the essency fruit is pure and poised, and the tannins are silky and fine; the vibrancy of the fruit core is electric, as is the persistence of the finish.

    The 2006 The Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz is composed of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon and 31% Shiraz. Deep garnet-purple in color, it offers intense notes of blackberry preserves, warm cherries, black currant cordial plus an earthy / gamey undercurrent and nuances of marmite toast. The tight-knit medium to full-bodied palate is firmly structured with a high level of grainy tannins, high acid and just enough savory flesh giving a long finish. Approachable now, it should be best 2012 to 2018.

    This wine has the dusty bitumen road scent of a classic, old-fashioned Barossa shiraz. Cabernet lends a bright red fruit character, like persimmon, finishing with tangy acidity. It offers the comfort of a well-balanced blend, along with the potential to age.

    Um, YUM, is what I can say about this wine. Delicious now, lots of ability to age. Not too heavy, just the right balance, better than many Cabs twice it's price. Plus, the signature on the label changes every vintage, giving homage to an employee who has contributed much to the winery. Kind of like a lifetime achievement award :) super special way to thank someone for hard work. I'll drink to that!
