Deep maroon in color with some brick red hues. The nose shows classic aromas of cassis, pretty herbal notes and lifted perfumes immediately reminiscent of roasted coffee, with some deep concentrated blackcurrant, fragrant dried oregano and subtle vanilla bean from maturation in toasted oak barriques. This wine is well balanced with silky blackcurrant fruit flavors upfront, carried along the palate by a fresh acid moving into dried herbal flavors and firm, slightly drying tannins.
"Deep colour; potent, brooding, multi-layered aromas and flavours, the structure provided by ripe cabernet tannins and, to a lesser degree, French oak."
Australian Wine Companion
"Smooth and open-textured, with classic violet-tinged currant flavors at the core, persisting nicely against fine-grained tannins. Best from 2009 through 2013. 200 cases imported."
