Magnificent colour displaying a densely saturated inky black core with an equally deep dark purple black hue. Heady blackberry and liquorice aromas laced with clove stream out of the glass followed by dark plum, smoky vanillin cedar, hints of fennel, light scorched earth and spicy pepper notes. Monumentally rich, enormously powerful and statuesque, the seductive palate is completely engulfed with decadent blackberry, black cherry and liquorice fruit which is underpinned by firm, muscular tannins. Inky vanillin cedar, subtle scorched earth, dried meats and blackpepper nuances are also evident. Despite the wines density and incredible concentration it remains very agile. Superb drive and carry concluding with a prodigiously long aftertaste.
Cellar 8-10 years.
Alc. 14.9%

Other Reviews.....
This is an ultra rich bottling of a parcel from one of the Northern Barossa’s most respected growers. Rich blackberries pervade every corner of the nose and palate. Luscious, silky fruit tannins flow in effortless, succulent style and deliver plush and glossy-ripe texture to close. Impeccable. Drink or hold.
