Midnight black heart with a dark red black tinged hue. Delightful red currant, violet and mulberry aromas drift through the olfactory senses with good intensity. Delicate cigar box, black olive, dusty earth and spice notes ensue. Delicious red to black currant and red cherry fruits are elegantly draped across the palate with notions of mulberry, dusty earth, spicy cedar, tobacco and bay leaf lending further complexity. Structured fine grained tannins with a slightly dryish yet refined mid length conclusion.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.

Other Reviews….
A medium, bright crimson ruby. This is the essence of good cool-climate cabernet sauvignon. Aromas of cherries, blackcurrants, violets and a little bell pepper, the oak sitting discreetly in the background. The palate is nicely weighted, the medium-bodied fruit with good intensity, while the superfine and persistent tannins make this a wine you can enjoy now and over the next seven to 10 years.

A selection of the best rows getting 20% new oak. 1500 bottles produced.
Blackcurrant, blackberry, tobacco, floral, subtle roasted red capsicum, just a little cedar/vanilla oak. It’s dense, ripe dark fruit with something of an earthy/tobacco/coffee ground bass, plush silty tannin, balanced acidity, and a long savoury finish. The texture here is excellent, and the earthy/gravelly bits are right on for the grape variety, and in a strange sort of twist, it reminds me of Pomerol, if you’ll forgive me the redundant comparison. Either way, I reckon it’s a terrific wine of individual personality and robust structure. Yes. Drink 2024-2032+
