Predominantly sourced from a single vineyard in the northern Yallingup subregion of the Margaret River strip, this wine offers classic varietal and regional characters of Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon.

A whiff of cigar box allied with blackcurrant fruit on the bouquet, then a palate which opens with similar fruit before somewhat abrupt tannins come through on the mid- to back-palate, the latter at odds with early drinking proposition.

Winery Tasting Notes
The colour is an opaque purple red of great density.
The riper Cabernet Sauvignon of the Yallingup subregion offers classic varietal and regional characters of blackcurrant, chocolate, roasted tomatoes and dried sage.
The palate is rich and fleshy with juicy blackberry and fine cedary tannin textures. The full bodied mid-palate is supported by ripe open knit fruit tannins and well integrated French oak.
This wine will develop further over the next 2 to 3 years, and drink well for up to 6 years.
