A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Shiraz.
Bright, deep-red, with an impenetrable core. A complex amalgam of fresh mulberry/blueberry/
blackberry fruits laced with soy & malt, and slices of fresh fig & dates. A later residual whiff of panjuices, rosemary & sage. Ripe, yet not overripe. Oak? Yes, and very stylish!Textbook structure: tannin, acidity, balance.
Upfront, Cabernet & Shiraz fruits intertwine for
collective attention, a sweet middle meshed with
tea-leaf/olive tapenade flavours. Rounded, ripe
and lush tannins and integrated spicy oak usher a
finish bereft of any rough edges. Focused,
polished, brooding, inky. No doubt its best lies
"Great colour, and as befits the vintage, is an intense and complex wine of great breed; it has many layers of blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, earth and chocolate, the powerful tannins in balance, the oak likewise."
