Great depth of color reflecting the splendid 2009 red wine vintage. The bouquet has aromas of dark plums, black fruits & a hint of oak in the background. Excellent structure - will continue to develop in the bottle for five plus years.
This wine is a perfect accompaniment with steak, roast beef and lamb and excellent with pizza and meat based pasta dishes. It is delightful with aged cheddar or pecorino cheeses.
"The wine has more complexity than some prior vintages, although it is hard to pinpoint the reason. Perhaps it's the way the notes of spice, plum, chocolate and oak come together on the bouquet and palate. Whatever, just relax and enjoy it whenever the mood takes you over the next 5 years."
Australian Wine Companion
"Fully oaked, this packed jammy blackberry flavors into a dark structure of black walnut and tar-scented tannins. It's as savory as it is sweet, balanced for Korean spicy pork.
