    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep red. The nose has some complex developed notes with roasted meats, aniseed and red capsicum. The palate is rich, full bodied and enticing with plums, roasted capsicum and vegemite notes. The maturation in French oak has led to some subtle spice lift and a lovely roundness and richness on the palate. There are some fleshy tannins which will make this wine an ideal match to rich dishes, especially red meats or game. The flavors linger in the mouth.

    52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Malbec, 18% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot.

    Critical Acclaim:

    It is nigh on certain that most - possibly all - of this estate-grown wine comes from the Eden Valley where three of the Clarke family vineyards are situated. Strong purple-crimson. This is yet another Thorn-Clarke wine with a glittering show record earned by prior vintages. It is an extremely powerful wine, laden with black fruits and firm tannins, and should prosper in bottle right up to its 20th birthday.

    Polished, velvety and spicy, this is generous with its tobacco and loamy earth elements that surround a lithe core of dark berry and herb. Lingers softly. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Shiraz. Drink now through 2015. 10,000 cases made.
