From the winery:

Yalumba ‘The Cigar’ is from the Yalumba Coonawarra Estate. Sibling to ‘The Menzies’, this wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon harvested from The Menzies Estate vineyards. Named for the unique cigar-shaped strip of rich red terra rossa soil which defines Coonawarra’s wine region. Today, Coonawarra vineyard land is prized like a precious gem.
This wine shows an intense complex bouquet of cherries and dark chocolate. There is lavender perfume and a touch of dried sage. The palate is typical of Menzies "The Cigar" wines, opening with a burst of plush ripe fruit reminiscent of mulberry compote. These fruit characters build the wine in the mid palate where they are met with a complex hint of ironstone. The 2011 "The Cigar" offers great length and the wine finishes with fruit and fine emery tannins.
