Natalie's Score: 88/100

Lovely nose of dark, fleshy blackberries, smoke and a hint of mint. Good, balanced acidity for food. Smooth and full-bodied. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pasta with tomato sauce, sauces with mushrooms, BBQ beef, stews, braised meats and poultry, salami.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bright raspberry. blueberry notes on the nose, followed by full fruitiness on the palate with touches of currants, coffee and a delightful milk chocolate presence. A classic match with beef dishes.
Another ground-breaking cross-continent blend of premium cabernet grapes grown in Mudgee NSW (66%) and Frankland WA (28%), fermented at cool to moderate temperatures to capture the varietal notes. Individual parcels were matured in a combination of one and two year old French oak barrels prior to final blending.
This wine leads the new wave of Australian cabernets that highlight the bright ripe cherry, blackcurrant and leafy notes of the variety. Generous ‘forest fruits’ – ripe red berries to the fore, layered yet soft tannins and a lovely crisp, fresh finish that leaves you wanting for more.
