Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Wine EnthusiastThis is a fairly full-bodied Cabernet that manages to be intense without being overbearing, balancing cassis and tobacco shadings with a hint of tomato leaf. The tannins are supple enough to make it approachable now. Ringbolt is the Margaret River outpost of the Yalumba group of wineries.
Wine SpectatorRipe and open-textured, with gritty tannins around a lively core of red plum and currant fruit, lightening up on the cinnamon-accented finish. Drink now through 2014.
