This wine is a blend of the following grape varieties:
Cabernet Sauvignon 60%
Petit Verdot 20%
- NSW - Hunter Valley
- New South Wales
Wild, concentrated but slightly herbal and earthy aromas of cassis and plums with cedary chocolate oak. Deeply flavoured, smooth and sumptuous, rather rich and concentrated for this label, but long, seamless and finely balanced. Finishes with leathery suggestions of dark plums, olives, cedar and chocolate.

Winery Tasting Notes
Blackberry, black cherry and plums. Cedar, oak balanced, some earthy tones.
Rich. Fruit displays perfect balance between fruit sweetness and savoury elegance. Ripe tannins, complex and integrated. One of the greatest vintages by which the others may be judged- an absolute classic - but don’t drink till 2005 at earliest. Wow!
