Winery Notes:

Aroma. Fragrant and bright on the nose. A purity of black currant, anise and violet fruit- framed by savory notes of French oak.

Palate. Medium bodied; a wine showing intensity, without heaviness. A generous core of juicy fruit with well-integrated chalky tannins and a seamless finish.  

Cellaring. A modern expression of Coonawarra Cabernet that is both ready to enjoy now, or reward sometime in the cellar.

The female clad label on this wine is both elegant and fierce, a reflection of the rock star team of women responsible for the liquid inside. This wine walks a deft line between power and restraint, layering flavors of plush dark berries with graphite, mint, bay leaf, black olive and earthy spice. The palate is linear and tightly knit with chalky tannins that lend length and complexity. *Editors’ Choice*

Dense and toothsome, with sink-your-teeth-into-them tannins that add a wonderful richness and density to the generous flavors of dark chocolate–covered coffee bean, kirsch, sage and cassis. The harmony keeps building on the finish.

The 2018 Tolmer Cabernet Sauvignon boasts classic cassis aromas, tinged with mint and cedar. It's medium-bodied and slightly dusty on the palate, with a fine sense of proportion and balance. Not heavy or overly rich, it provides plenty of flavor while finishing fresh and clean.
