Matured in French oak for 28 months. Totally opaque black dark red core with a deep dark red hue. The olfactory senses are filled with intense ripe blackcurrant, liquorice and bay leaf aromas followed by vanillin cedar, earth, a hint of leather and spice. Rich, opulent and fleshy the ripe blackcurrant and liquorice fruit still retains a sense of elegance over a back drop of prominent vanillin cedar, earth, bay leaf and traces of spicy leather. Firm yet very polished tannins are well integrated and have a velvety feel. A long plush aftertaste completes this very powerful Coonawarra Cabernet. Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Impressive crimson-purple; estate-grown, the wine spent 28 months in new French and American oak; that oak is, of course, obvious, but there is more than enough fresh, vibrant and juicy cassis/red fruit to come out on top, sustained by fine tannins.
