Deep crimson, with brick red hues. the 2008 Jester Cabernet shows liquorice, nutmeg and cassis notes which provide a lift to the subtle hints of French oak. Well rounded on the palate, the firm tannins are complemented by nuances of chocolate, blackcurrant and earth.
"Black fruits, leather and dark chocolate aromas jump from the glass, and are the drivers on the palate, which is more elegant than prior Jesters."
Australian Wine Companion
"Opaque ruby. Youthful, high-pitched aromas of red and dark berries, with a touch of anise. Juicy, palate-staining black raspberry and licorice flavors are enlivened by zesty minerality, picking up a spicy quality with air. Nervy and pure on the long, spicy aftertaste. No excess fat here."
International Wine Cellar
This was an ok bottle not partuclarly bad just seems to be lacking that crispness in taste that I prefer. I rated it 3 stars as in this price range it is just that a middle of the road bottle to me.
