    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 Cabernet was sourced from five vineyards in the McLaren Vale district. The major percentage is from our McLaren Flat vineyard together with that of our immediate neighbor. These vineyards, located at the northern part of the foothills, ripen later than many of the other subregions resulting in "cooler climate" aromatic dark fruit driven wines with intense mid to back palate presence and an abundance of soft velvety tannins. The balance of the blend is sourced from vineyards in the Seaview, Willunga and Aldinga regions of McLaren Vale. These vineyards are located in sites where the influence of strong soils gives rise to intense aromas and flavors.

    Aromas of dark berries combine with hints of earthy richness. The palate is full of rich dark savory fruit leaving trails of dark chocolate, cherries and sweet chalky tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Savoury, brooding black fruits leave no doubt about variety or region, but the elegant, fine tannins on the finish are an unexpected pleasure.

    The purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a fragrant nose of cedar, leather, black currant, blackberry, and plum. This leads to a medium-bodied wine with plenty of savory fruit, spice notes, enough structure to evolve for 3-5 years, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will offer prime drinking between 2012 and 2025.

    Not impressed, but, it delivers a basic Cab feel. Not too fruity and a short finish. Probably won't buy again.

    Despite praise for this wine, I was disappointed. Could not even finish it. No body, little shape, a very average wine.
