- Closure: Stelvin
A Classic W.A. Blend that out performs many Cabernets at twice the price!
Totally opaque midnight black dark red colour with a bright dark red hue. Showing excellent intensity the nose offers up a mixture of ripe blackcurrant, dark cherry and mulberry fruits with following notes of cedar, tobacco and spice. The palate thrills the taste buds with its tremendous richness and concentration that delivers well beyond its price point. Mouthfilling flavours of ripe blackcurrant, liquorice and mulberry are featured over a background of cedary bay leaf like characters and spice. The tannins are slightly dryish, yet fine grained and firm enough to support the wealth of fruit. Long aftertaste of ripe blackcurrant, mulberry, spicy cedar and subtle bay leaf. Exceptional value that’s great drinking now but will also reward cellaring.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
"The value transcends belief." - James Halliday's Wine Companion
80% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot with a simple WA GI; basic vinification: cold soak and 12 days on skins, portions aged separately in new and used French oak for 12 months. The colour is excellent - as is everything else about the wine; black and redcurrant, bay leaf and black olive hop into bed with each other, and snuggle under the covers, the French oak and tannins left to their own devices. The value transcends belief. Drink by 2025.
