Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Shiraz, and 17% Merlot.

Ruby red in color, this wine possesses initial mineral characteristics on the nose, backed up by clean blueberry aromas with hints of fruit cake. This wine shows great balance. The well integrated tannins, elegant structure and a juicy finish make the Guardian Peak Frontier 2006 a very special wine. The three varietals each contribute unique flavours and character to the wine to make this a wonderful drinking experience.

The wine will mature and soften beautifully over the next 5 years.

My Notes:
