Winemaker's Notes

The colour is intense ruby red with garnet tints. Displaying the classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes evident in the greatest growing years in Margaret River, the bouquet has lifted and intense blackberry, blackcurrant and mulberry fruits, with the enhancement of cedary French oak for complexity, intermingled with spice and dark chocolate. The palate shows a full bodied wine with intense blackberry and blackcurrant fruit with hints of mocha and chocolate that round off the complex flavours. This wine has great fruit length with smooth and silky tannins that provide a soft but lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Great colour, really vibrant: pure, focused cabernet fruit bouquet, with a typical savoury edge of black olive and cedar; more cassis on the palate and the oak comes through with ample fine tannins in support."
94 Points

"Deep red. Spicy red- and blackcurrant aromas display a youthfully tangy quality, with surprising clarity for a cabernet from a hot vintage. A bit musclebound initially but aeration brought fleshier dark berry, mocha and baking spice flavors. The spice notes repeat on the long, juicy finish, which features a lingering impression of ripe cherry. Give this some time in bottle. 90+"
91 Points

"Elegant, lithe, deftly balanced and distinctive for its open-textured display of raspberry, pomegranate, cedar and subtle spices, lingering on the refined finish against well-modulated tannins. Drink now through 2015."
90 Points

"Cellar Selection
Classic notes of lead pencil and black cherries open this elegant entry from Margaret River. Dense and concentrated in the mouth and embellished by hints of vanilla, this wine has a long, complex finish and the ability to improve significantly over the next 5-10 years."

Learn About Margaret River

Located in the southwest area of Western Australia, the country's largest state, Margaret River wine growing region is on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean.

Other varieties that have found results are Chardonnay & Riesling.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.

Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
