ABV: 14.5%
Closure: Cork

Impenetrable inky black colour with a deep dark red black hue. Sailing out of the glass are ripe blackcurrant aromas infused with cedary tobacco, dried herb, dusty earth and spicy black olive notes. Dense, lavish and solidly built the full bodied palate is flush with rich blackcurrant and dark cherry fruit which over shadows a cedary tobacco, dried herb, black olive and spice back drop. A ripe sturdy tannin structure imparts a chewy feel onto the otherwise opulent conclusion that shows plenty of length.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews…
Sourced from a 1991-planted, 1.6h block of cabernet sauvignon that sits on the western side of Greenock Creek. Nary a herbaceous note in sight, the wine presents a rolling swell of red and blackberry and cherry fruits, cut with spice and cedar along with hints of crème de cassis, roasting game and turned earth. Fine, toothsome tannins and a bright sapid line of acidity provide ample cadence and support, finishing long, spicy and awash in pure fruit. Drink by 2025.
