Plum red with purple edges. An amalgam of blackcurrant, mulberry, violet and chocolaty aromas. Attractive strong plum flavors fill out the middle. Lovely ripe, fine-grained tannins embrace the palate and make a major contribution to its structure and length.
"Full bright red. Pristine, floral aromas of ripe cassis, small red berries, black olive and dark plum, tightly woven with lightly dusty, cedary oak. Juicy, translucent small berry and dark cherry fruit smartly dressed in creamy oak and bound in fine-grained tannins, delivering a pliant, supple texture and hidden strength. Tobacco-ey merlot and a hint of tar add complexity to this outstanding cabernet.
-International Wine Cellar
"Its sheer class shines through the trappings of extreme youth, a controlled explosion of blackcurrant, spice and blackberry, ripe tannins and French oak. "
Australian Wine Companion
"This is the flagship red from Cullen's Wilyabrup vineyards in Margaret River. A classic blend of Cabernet and Merlot, aged for 18 months in wood, it has huge, ripe fruit, along with elegance. Flavors of chocolate, mulberry and spices come together with ripe tannins. This wine definitely needs aging—give it five years at least."
