Winemaker's Notes

Rich, dark ruby black in color. Aromas of plum, dark fruits of the forest and chocolate. Youthful and gorgeous on the palate. Masses of ripe fruit. Plum, blackberry and spices. Full bodied yet soft, with rounded tannins and a delicious plummy and fresh berry finish.

Pair with hearty dishes such as slowly braised lamb shanks.

Enjoy now or age 10-15+ years from vintage.

A blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Shiraz and 14% Merlot.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich, focused and superbly concentrated to show off its intense, rosemary-accented black cherry, plum and blueberry flavors, riding smoothly on a dense, generous frame that feels plush and seductive, yet the flavors come through transparently. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2017. 400 cases imported."
