Rochford Isabella's Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 , Yarra Valley, VIC

On a recent trip to the Yarra Valley I stopped by Rochfords cellar door and while there were a few nice drops this was the standout I opened it this week to have with a rustic lentil pie, yummy stuff!

It has a  nose of cassis, coconut characters from the well integrated oak and very subtle dried herbs like thyme.

On the palate its full and dense and more savoury than expected...more earth with the black fruit noticeable later and some slight tarriness on the finish which is not unpleasant at all. A serious wine, an awesome winter warmer for that roast lamb or, for the vego's, roast vegetables with rosemary.
