    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense varietal Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of striking blackcurrants and cherries combining with aromatics of fragrant violets, bay leaf, anise, clove dried tobacco, and pencil-like oak. A balanced palate exhibits plump dark forest fruits. Dried sage, coffee bean, slight char and anise rise to a finish which is characterized by structural cocoa powderlike tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright hue for age; a quite remarkable outcome from a rare cool and wet Margaret River vintage; the decision was taken to sweat it out, and enough fine weather returned to achieve ripeness, ironically in a more accessible style than the '07.

    Deep ruby-red. Red- and blackcurrant, blood orange and licorice on the nose. Rich but youthfully taut, with deep, incisive red fruit flavors that are slow to unwind. Becomes more perfumed with air and picks up notes of cracked pepper and nutmeg. Finishes with nervy cut and silky, harmonious tannins. This promising wine still needs a little bottle age.

    International Wine Cellar

    This has the exotic purple fruit scent of acai, showing its cabernet sauvignon credentials in layers of fresh herbs. It's built as a refined claret, cool in tone, neither thick nor sweet. The balance makes it approachable now, and intriquing to pair with venison, kangaroo or other lean, gamey meats. The discretion and weight of the wine suggest it will age with grace.

    Wine & Spirits

    Firm, focused and full of character, offering mineral-accented plum and currant flavors on an aristocratic frame, finishing with fine tannins.
