Here's a wine that doesn't come along every day! Just starting to come into its prime, this Australian beauty is a deep plum to inky cherry red. There are inviting aromas of ripe plums, prunes and black olives, backed up with chocolate and roasted nut oak lift. Very complex with multi-layered fruit and oak. Rich and full bodied, the palate has excellent balance between fruit extract and tannin. This is a wine that will reward cellaring for 15-20 years.
"Ripe, smooth and generous, a velvety wine, with layers of blackberry, cherry, herb and spice flavors that recede slowly on the finish. Has the finish to encourage cellaring. Drink now through 2010."
