Cellar: Drink now - 8 Years (2024-2032)
ABV: 13.5%
Closure: Stelvin

A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 15% Malbec. Totally opaque midnight black core with a dark red black tinged hue. Delightful red currant and mulberry scents gently infused with vanillin cedar and tobacco evolve from the glass followed by black olive, earth and traces of bay leaf. Medium weighted the palate is generously endowed with a mix of red to black currant and mulberry fruits which meld into cedary tobacco, black olive, earth and bay leaf characters on the back half. Fine grained yet sturdily built tannin structure with a long refined and spicy conclusion.
Drink over the next 6-8 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews….
A blend of 60/25/15% cabernet sauvignon/merlot/malbec. Matured in older French oak for 15 months. A deep-ish crimson red. Another successful, vibrant fruit-driven red from Warramate. Aromas of freshly picked cherries and a hint of bell pepper and cedar lead onto the medium-bodied, quite delicious and fine-boned palate. Ready to trot, but all good if you still have some in the cellar four to six years from now. Drink by 2028.
