Winemaker's Notes

Dense, deep red color with a purple core and vibrant ruby rim. The nose is dominated by appealing Cabernet Sauvignon varietal characters, with telltale notes of blackcurrant, capsicum and mint. Merlot adds a plummy richness at the back, whilst the oak conveys a spicy warmth to the background aromatics. Dark cherry and blackcurrant flavours dominate the palate, with beetroot and some leafy notes, set against a savoury backdrop of understated oak. The wine has a tight structure, with excellent grip, definition and length, showing ripe tannins and abundant varietal flavour. Drinking well now but showing promise of medium term aging capability.
