Rich, concentrated and structured this is an outstanding example of Coonawarra Cabernet at a never before seen price.

From a very well known and highly acclaimed Coonawarra producer, this outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon spent 20 months maturing in French oak. Dense inky black heart with a deep dark red black tinged hue. Filling the nostrils are pronounced aromas of ripe blackcurrant and liquorice which are complimented by vanillin cedar, tobacco, black olive and spicy dried herb notes. Rich, full and structured the palate is awash with ripe blackcurrant and liquorice fruits. Lingering underneath are vanillin cedar, spicy tobacco, black olive and dried herb characters. Finishes firm with a sturdy framework of tannins and long generous red to black currant driven aftertaste.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 14.2%

Other Reviews….
This is pure Coonawarra, showing plenty of class. Cassis and blackcurrants are inflected with tobacco, mint and woodsy spices. It's more medium bodied, very fresh and lively. Tannins are pitch-perfect – ripe, savoury and slightly grainy. It feels nicely polished, but not fabricated. Drink by 2033.
