Winemaker Notes

Deep blue black in color. The nose has Blackcurrant, sandalwood and dried herbs. The palate delivers distinct blackcurrant, eucalyptus with typical richness and fine tannin structure. This stylish medium bodied wine is definitive Coonawarra.

Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
