Other Reviews....
A 95/5% blend, the cabernet planted in '66, the components separately open-fermented and blended after mlf, in all 20 months before bottling, then 2 years in bottle before release. Conceived as elegant and concentrated compared to normal opulence of McLaren Vale, I'll split the difference and agree that the hallmark of the wine is concentration, indeed extreme concentration. Drink by 2046.
