A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon and 48% Shiraz.
Bright, deep-red, with an impenetrable core. A complex amalgam of fresh mulberry/blueberry/
blackberry fruits laced with soy & malt, and slices of fresh fig & dates. A later residual whiff of panjuices, rosemary & sage. Ripe, yet not overripe. Oak? Yes, and very stylish!Textbook structure: tannin, acidity, balance.
Upfront, Cabernet & Shiraz fruits intertwine for
collective attention, a sweet middle meshed with
tea-leaf/olive tapenade flavours. Rounded, ripe
and lush tannins and integrated spicy oak usher a
finish bereft of any rough edges. Focused,
polished, brooding, inky. No doubt its best lies
