Winemaker Notes

Deep, red, crimson color. Lifted aromas of blue berries and blackcurrants mingle with biscuit sweet French oak, briary spice and a hint of cool menthol. A mouthful of juicy blue fruits hits the palate, balanced with briary spice and a wonderful oak sweetness. Hints of licorice and black olive add to the complexity and flow through with velvety fine tannins to a youthfully austere finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast

Full bodied and richly textured, this is a terrific value in Barossa Cabernet. And it's no simple fruity concoction, either. Instead, it delivers complex notes of grilled meat, coffee and black olive layered easily over a base of dark plums. Finishes long, velvety and mouthwatering; drink now-2020.
Editors' Choice

ST 90
International Wine Cellar

Saturated ruby. Classic cabernet aromas of cassis, bitter cherry, cured tobacco and licorice, with a suave floral quality gaining with air. Juicy, palate-staining dark berry and cherry flavors show an appealing sweetness, with dusty tannins providing firmness on the back end. Gains sweetness with aeration and finishes with echoes of bitter cherry and candied flowers. I'd hold onto this for a few more years, then serve it with grilled beef or lamb.
