93 Points - Jay Miller (erobertparker.com)

The 2006 Alan’s Cabernet Vat 1 is a five grape Bordeaux blend aged for 20 months in 100% new French oak with a bit of the wine receiving the “200%” new oak treatment. Purple-colored, it offers an alluring perfume of pain grille, pencil lead, mineral, black currant, and blackberry liqueur. Full-bodied and opulent on the palate, this dense, concentrated effort will evolve for 5-7 years with peak drinking years from 2016 to 2031.

Region

Situated due North of Australia’s capital, Melbourne, the Heathcote region sits nestled between the Goulburn Valley and Bendigo region, in Central Victoria. Wine from this region stands out due to the perfect combination of warm climates and cool, southerly winds mixed with its ancient rich, red Cambrian soil. The region has become renowned in recent years for its Shiraz, which tends to be complex yet well-balanced. As well as Shiraz, the other red varieties such as Petit Verdot and Cabernet Sauvignon do well here, with whites such as Viognier and Chardonnay becoming increasing popular. From the Heathcote region, we have a selection of wine from two of its best wineries, Wild Duck Creek and Tatiarra.
