#78 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012
Deep crimson red. Heavy oak aromas combined with hints of dark fruits, plum and cassis. This wine shows great structure and balance. Initial Cabernet Sauvignon characteristics are followed up with a spicy finish from the Shiraz. With great tannin structure and a strong backbone this wine has excellent aging potential.
"This is pure and driven, with beautiful red currant, blackberry and plum fruit coursing along, laced with supple but substantial tannins and backed by iron and pepper on the sleek finish. Should cellar nicely. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2018. 2,125 cases made."
