|Steve Woodward reviewed this wine as follows:|
This is a Meritage style blend of Howling Bluff estate grapes. Dominated by Merlot (80% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 16% Malbec) the wine shows intense plum, black cherry and coffee with further complex flavours and aromas of cassis, clove, cinnamon, pepper and chocolate. The finish is long and complex with concentrated flavours that both linger and evolve. Built for aging, this wine has ripe, fine grained tannins that will reward 6-12 years in the cellar, or decanting to drink now.
