Winemaker's Notes

Vibrant red ruby colour. This wine is showing its Cabernet Sauvignon dominated heritage. The spice, cedar and roasted coffee aromas are lifted and complexed with the rich curranty fruit possible from a fully ripe year.

This wine is a real pleasure at the moment but will round out more so in a year or two and will live on for 7-10 years.
