Bleasdale The Iron Duke Cabernet Sauvignon 2010


According to the Potts Family, ‘there’s a story in every glass’, and apparently, the ‘Iron Duke’ in this case is an

old rifle and from the stunning label, it was a pretty one. That is, if one can or even should call a deadly rifle pretty…… But I digress.  Either way, The Iron Duke is a wine that you can really get your teeth into can be either a massive fruit and alcohol bomb or it could be a savoury, finely textured thoughtful wine such as The Iron Duke.

There is load of rich cedary, chocolate coated coconut to support the ripe blueberry and ribena fruit. It is full bodied by international standards yet still has an elegantly proportioned density to the fruit. Seriously good wine for $65 and it is only a young’un yet and needs a good decant to be able to appreciate it fully. All this on the very first vintage made makes this one to watch.

Date:  October 2014   Price:  $65    Value: $$   Drink: 3 – 7+ years
