Dense midnight black in colour with a deep dark red black tinged hue. The nose offers up delightful red to black currant and mulberry scents which are trailed by spicy cedar, tobacco and bay leaf notes. The mid weighted palate is layered with rich red to black currant and ripe mulberry fruits which overlay a back drop of cedary tobacco characters, subtle black olive and infusions of bay leaf. Excellent concentration and depth with a fleshed out mouthfeel backed by a sturdy tannin structure. Concludes long and generous yet refined.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
The fruit from this excellent vintage comes off a mix of the original 1973 plantings at Juniper and another vineyard about six kilometres away. It’s a vibrant, high energy wine with a strong varietal influence. Quite a deal of tannin evident which is probably a result of the small vintage and intensity from the berries. Love the chalky palate feel and driving intensity which is a feature of 2020. Balanced with exceptional fruit definition. A class act and great value. Drink 2021-2033.

Sorted, 4-day cold soak, 12-14 days' skin contact; matured in barriques (30% new French) for 14 months. Bright crimson. Man alive, this packs a punch, with alternating layers of cassis and tannins that go on and on. Each part is so clearly articulated, the requisite balance will allow this to cruise through the 10+ years it needs. Drink by 2050.
