The color is deep red with a dense black center, and the nose gives tantalising aromas of chocolate, blackcurrants, with hints of nutmeg, cloves and star anise. It is a beautifully rich Cabernet with superb depth of seamless fruit.
"Here you must read 'Barossa' as including both the Barossa and Eden valleys, the latter distinctly cooler than the former, but both with nooks and crannies providing a welcome home for cabernet sauvignon - and if anyone knows where they are, it's Peter Lehmann. The wine has the stature and structure missing from the red wines in this range, with notes of herb, mint and earth adding interest to the core of blackcurrant fruit. It has good tannin balance and a nice touch of oak. It's good to go now."

"Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon has mint and bay leaf hints over notes of warm cassis, blackberries and tree bark. Full bodied with a good amount of expressive cassis flavor in the mouth, it has a medium level of grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drink this one now to 2015. "
