Incredible richness, complexity and depth with seductive, draw-me-into-the-glass aromas of black fruit and dark spices. Smooth and full-bodied with a relaxed luxury that says life's good, enjoy.

Separate vinifications of Pillar Box wines are employed, and 30% of the wine destined for Pillar Box is matured in 90% French and 10% American barrels of varying age. After 12 months the chosen components for Pillar Box Reserve are blended and bottled. Not surprisingly, it is the varietal fruit expression of cabernet in this maritime climate that drives this wine, with fine tannins and enough oak to get it over the line. It will be at its best in 3-5 years. Drink until 2014. Score: 90 Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
