The 2009 Stella Bella Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, of 73/27% proportions aged in French Oak for 24 months, has intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry, vanilla, creamy oak and coconut. It is a medium bodied; extra-dry, fruity wine; balanced with good acidity, refined tannins and a long and smooth finish. This is a sipping wine despite being food friendly; drink now – 2020++. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted at Australia Today 2014 Trade show http://grapeselections.com/australian-wine/ in Feb/14.
