Love this! Big on flavour but not over the top or heavy. Fleshy crushed black plums that spread their juices over your palate as you swirl the wine back and forth in your mouth. Great structure and balance. A long, smoky finish.

Lee Newby, AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

Grape Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon 88%. Syrah 8%, Carmenere 4%

Very Good wine with medium plus fruit intensity and concentration. The mix of dark berries and plums sits over a touch of baking spice and a tobacco note. The wine has very good complexity and will improve for a year or two. The tannins are medium plus and the acidity is medium making for a structured wine. Drink now and for the next 8-10 years.
