Winery Notes:

A bouquet of dark, berried, inky fruit with  plenty of sawdusty/smoky oak. While it’s warm with alcohol it remains smooth, supple and persistent. It’s all blackcurrant, bay leaves and aforementioned oak on the pallet. Tannin is fine-grained. 

This is a complete and harmonious wine  with great persistence of flavor. Bright and delicious, speaking of contemporary Coonawarra Cabernet. 

Ready to drink now or for enjoying the  rewards of cellaring for the next 5-7 years.

Wine SpectatorDense, with sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins and concentration to the plum, cassis and blackberry flavors. Sage and rosemary accents linger in the background. Strikes the right balance between power and elegance, with grace notes of eucalyptus, black tea and tobacco lingering on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2030. 4,300 cases imported.
