Silky texture and sweet cabernet fruit, but submerged in oak after 38 months in new French and American barrels; 12 months less surely would have made a better and less expensive wine. Rating 91 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (SEP/2007)
Winery Tasting Notes
Dark plum reds with purple red tinges.
A rich & complex expression of ripe fruit & oak matured tones. Dusty mulberry & ripe plum with subtle black olive fruits are enticingly infused with sweet vanilla bean, smoky & roasted mocha oak matured aromas.
Seams of complexity are a feature of the palate.Rich fruit and cedar oak tones are smoothly combined in this generous & appealing palate structure. Ripe dark berries, hints of dusty mulberry and spicy plums with subtle vanilla, mocha and chocolate from the long oak maturation period. Fine dusty, softly assertive lingering tannins complete the long flavours.
