Natalie's Score: 87/100
A solid producer delivers with this full-bodied, supple, savoury red that offers aromas of black and purple plums and licorice. Good grip on the palate with a satisfying finish. Great for barbecues and steak dinners.

|D rated this wine as 89/100|
|Vintage Conditions: Fruit for this wine was sourced from selected vineyards in South Eastern Australia. The 2009 vintage was characterised by some unusual weather|
conditions. Below average winter rainfall was followed by a relatively warm and dry spring, which ended with a cool and damp November and December, increasing sub-soil moisture. Warm summer conditions brought on an early vintage which was not dissimilar to 2008.
Maturation: Parcels of this wine were oak matured to add a touch of spicy complexity, while maintaining a focus on the wine's
fresh fruit characters.
Colour: Crimson red with a dark core.
Nose: Enticing dark berry aromas and plums with a touch of varietal leafiness and subtle oak.
Palate: Up-front blackberry fruits and cassis are provided by the Cabernet component while the Merlot fills out the midpalate with fleshy plum fruit. The finish lingers with typical Cabernet tannins providing a nice amount of grip.
