rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I tasted the 2010. Yalumba makes this wine with vines ranging from 75 to 113 years old. The wine is then aged in small 90 litters casks called octavius (half in French oak, half in American oak) before assemblage. It is a really aromatic wine (dark berries, pepper, clove) with a really opulent mouth with velvety tannins and an nice finale.
