    Winemaker's Notes:

    A blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Shiraz and 10% Merlot.

    A full-bodied red wine with purple-red hues and good depth of color. Concentrated red berry fruits of dark cherries, plums and spicy fruit cake flavours provide an uplifted intensity. The nose is clean and pure with layers of rich dense fruits. Oak provides a caramel/mocha complexity. The long brooding palate has an abundance of soft, round, juicy red berry fruits. The vibrant, sweet palate has aniseed spice and black pepper complexity with mineral gravely texture providing some dryness. Fine, soft, powdery tannins add structural focus and length. This wine should be enjoyed upon release; however given the pedigree and quality of the 2007 vintage, it could also be cellared comfortably for 3-4 years.

    "Smoky spice and dried herbs on the nose are followed by flavors of rustic spice and red fruit on the palate. Vibrant fruit and muscular tannins are integrated by a clean minerality. The wine has native character but will please many palates with its dimension." 90 Points,
    Wine Enthusiast

    I am writing this just to make sure that I do not buy this wine ever again. Even then, I should add that it wasnt bad enough that we didnt finish the bottle.
