Winemaker Notes

This wine leads the new wave of Australian Cabernets that highlight the bright ripe cherry, blackcurrant and leafy notes of the variety. Generous 'forest fruits' – ripe red berries to the fore, layered yet soft tannins and a lovely crisp, fresh finish that leaves you wanting for more.

Critical Acclaim

JH 91
Australian Wine Companion

Crimson-purple; highly fragrant and very expressive, with a display of redcurrant and other red fruits, slightly darker fruit flavours lurking in the background; the faultless balance means the wine can be fully enjoyed right now. Excellent value.

James Oatley
Bob Oatley’s heritage goes back to the early days of the convict settlement in Sydney. Bob is a fifth generation Australian – a direct descendant of James Oatley, who was born in Warwickshire, England in 1770, the same year that Captain Cook discovered the east coast of Australia. James Oatley grew up to become a clockmaker but along the way was a little errant in his ways - he was found guilty of stealing bed linen.... View More

Responsible for the vast majority of American wine production, if California were a country, it would be the world’s fourth largest wine-producing nation. The state’s diverse terrain and microclimates allow for an incredibly wide-ranging selection of wine styles, and unlike tradition-bound Europe, experimentation is more than welcome here. Wineries range from boutique to massive corporations, and price and quality are equally varied—plenty of inexpensive bulk wine is made in the Central Coast area, while Napa is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious and expensive “cult” wines.

Just about every style of wine you can imagine is made in California, from bone dry to unctuously sweet, still to sparkling, light and fresh to rich and full-bodied. Each AVA and sub-AVA has its own distinct personality. In the Napa Valley, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and other Bordeaux varieties dominate, as well as Sauvignon Blanc. Sonoma County is best known for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Zinfandel. The Central Coast has carved out a niche with Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah, while Mendocino has found success with Alsatian varieties such as Riesling and Gewürztraminer. With all the diversity that California has to offer, it is certain that any wine lover will find something to get excited about.
