Vintages Wine Panel: This wine is named for a young blacksmith who emigrated to Australia from Prussia in 1843 and helped build the village of Langmeil. Matured in French oak (20% new) for 18 months, it’s made in a fruit-forward style, bursting with blackcurrant and blackberry aromas as well as notes of mint, vanilla and earth. Dry, medium full-bodied with generous fruit flavors balanced by medium tannins and acidity. Serve it over the next 3-5 years. My note: A long, lovely pure expression of black fruit and smoke. This full-bodied wonder has good acidity and a balanced structure. A rock solid effort from this producer.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: steak florentine, lamb chops, pheasant, Ethiopian lamb dishes, mustard greens.

Brad rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a very nice cab. It was absolutely loaded with sediment and requires decanting with a screen. It has a very nice beet red colour with bold rich aromas of mint, black cherries and some pencil led. This is a wine with rich fruit flavours as the cherry is very prominent in this wine. It is full to the mouth and palate and has a beautiful spicy tingle. It tasted great with the BBQ filet. This is a must have cab for any cab lover
