Winemaker's Notes:

Inky bright crimson, with a dark center and a youthful edge. Aromas of black cherries, dark fruits of the forest and hints of cassis & spice. A full-bodied wine with a supple mouth feel. Dark berry characters, spice box and liquorice mingle on the palate. Enjoy over the next 5-8 years.
My Notes:

About Kaesler:

Kaesler is a privately owned wine company that produces estate grown wines from vineyards as old as 1893. The Kaesler family were pioneers who settled in the Barossa Valley in the 1840's. In 1891 they bought a parcel of land and in 1893 planted their first vines. Today Kaesler wines are made from these ancient, dry grown vineyards, by the third owners of this magnificent property.
