Overview

The colour is a deep brick red with some rich mahogany hues. The aroma is intensely varietal. It shows herbaceous characters, menthol, mint and some savoury notes of meat and soy. Extended time in American and French oak hogsheads gives a nice earthy cedary bouquet. The palate is well structured with grippy tannins and acidity providing length and backbone.

Expert Reviews

A 62/38% blend from Coonawarra and McLaren Vale, bottled Jul'10 after 28 months in barrel. Counterintuitively, the McLaren Vale component is the most obvious, with its more luscious fruit and that inevitable jab of dark chocolate; however, Coonawarra provides the fine tannins rarely found in '07. Rating 94 - Drink by 2017, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014).
