The Bells and Whistles is a blend made from 55% Cab/Sav, 20% Shiraz, 15% Cab Franc and 10% Merlot grapes grown at St Mary's vineyards. The palate is balanced with a rich smooth persistence.
A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Merlot, the 2004 Bells and Whistles reveals more complexity, texture, and overall completeness.
Bright red. High-pitched, floral and spicy, with strong red berry and kirsch scents. Quite sweet and fleshy on entry, but firms up nicely in the middle palate, with the sweet cherry flavors developing complex herb and underbrush qualities on the back end. Finishes on a refreshing note of sour cherry, with gentle tannins. The winery experimented with micro-oxygenation, aiming to flesh out the wine.
