A full-flavored yet finely structured Cabernet of great appeal: black berries, dried leaves and fine gravelly tannin, reflect an outstanding year.
Wine & SpiritsAfter selling Rosemount, Bob Oatley teamed up with Chris Hancock and Larry Cherubino to form this venture. Cherubino makes this wine from vines in the northern end of Margaret River, producing an elegant 2011, its flavors shading from black currant to red. It's fragrant with a deep herbal scent and dark-roast coffee dimension to the tannins. A remarkable value, this is a rich and ageworthy red with a natural ease.
Australian Wine CompanionMedium red-purple; a pleasant medium-bodied cabernet with savoury black fruits, and the gently gravelly tannins that have always been markers of the region; there has been no attempt to build up the medium-bodied palate with oak.
