Cascabel Tempranillo/Graciano 2002

88 points.

McLaren Vale, South Australia. 13.5%

Dark red. Probably the first decent Australian tempranillo I’ve tried. Yet I’m sure I had this wine when younger and it was hard and undrinkable. Now it is quite impressive, with black olive characters.

My only complaint is that the wine is a bit flat on its feet. In spite of the screwcap and cool 2002 vintage the acid is a somewhat dull.
