    Winemaker's Notes:

    Sexy Beast, with 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, is a lovely deep purple color. This wine springs forth on a bouquet of lavender, creosote, warm plums, cranberries and hot oil, a lovely minty floral Asian spice follows. The palate is where this wine really shines as it bursts forth with a build, detail and density rarely seen from a McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon. There are very intelligent tannins at play here and they hold the varietal character right to the end, the fruit fits so beautifully into the structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe and supple, offering a velvety mouthful of blueberry, dark plum and currant flavors, shaded with hints of smoky meat and roasted herbs. Finishes with intensity.

    Very deep purple-black in color, the 2010 Sexy Beast Cabernet Sauvignon is profoundly scented of creme de cassis, cloves and cedar with underlying nuances of baker's chocolate, mint and pencil lead. Very full bodied and packed with taut, dense cassis flavor, it has a solid foundation of firm grainy tannins and crisp acid, finishing long and clean. Still very young and tight, consider drinking it 2013 to 2019+.

    Deep ruby. Blackcurrant and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of anise, black tea and pipe tobacco. Smooth and sweet in the mouth, with concentrated dark berry and bitter cherry flavors showing very good clarity. Closes firm and bright, with supple tannins giving shape to the sappy finish.
