Premium Wines | 2006 Corrina's Cabernet Shiraz Blend
Australian Wine Journal, Sept 2010, 90 points
Oliver's Taranga Corrina's Blend Cabernet Shiraz 2006 ($30) This wine's been around for a while now and it's still holding up quite okay, despite losing some of the fruit freshness and structure I recall tasting it previously. Now, it's chocolate/vanilla oak sits quite firmly on top of its fruit, which resides in the ripe McLaren Vale-cabernet currant fruit spectrum, with some shiraz derived nuances of dark plums and berries happily residing beneath. It's palate is very smooth, rich, ripe and chocolatey, reflecting its region well in an already approachable style.

Deep dark maroon.
Tarry rich Cabernet dominates the nose, with a chocolate background from the Shiraz. Intense.
Dark fruit characters dominate the palate. Huge weighty mid-palate gives an explosion of flavour, followed by rich fine grained tannins. A quite savoury finish.
