A powerful yet elegant wine with violet tones and silky textural elements.Certainly ripe juicy dark fruit flavours with textured tannins and a warming mouthfeel.

Long, fine and evenly balanced, this rather polished and measured cabernet is one of the leafier expressions of this varietal, with quite a pungent aroma of intense dark plums, cassis and dark cherries supported by cedar/cigarboxy oak. Very smooth and polished, its long, elegant palate of vibrant fruit, cedar/vanilla oak and loose-knit tannin reveals pleasing persistence and some leafy undertones.Rating 91 - Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2010 (01/OCT/2009)
Winery Tasting Notes
Dark cherry with a magenta hue.
Very much a classic “Bordeaux” like nose with ripe berry fruits and a touch of violet. Oak nuances are well and truly integrated in to the bouquet.
Quite young and fresh still. Certainly ripe juicy dark fruit flavours with textured tannins and a warming mouthfeel. Slightly more herbal and savoury in nature, as opposed to a “sweet” fruit style. No evidence of jamminess.
Balanced with good length, this wine will cellar well under the correct conditions for several more years to come.
