The bouquet of this wine is all perfume, poise and pleasure for the lover of fine Cabernet. Great depth and nuance, as the sweet and saintly violets meld with bush herbs, as fresh red, blue and black fruits gently simmer beneath the surface. Naturally the flavour and structure of the palate is no less exciting. A graphite mineral / savoury note gives a defined flavour and direction to start as rich berry fruits dominate the mid-palate then succumb to supple, linear fruit tannins, cajoled by slick cocoa oak notes that complete the wine. This wine is an organoleptic extravaganza and will give great enjoyment for decades.

James Halliday

77% from Margaret River, 33% Mount Barker, fermented in various stainless steel formats, matured for 22 months in French barriques (60% new). The oak is of high quality and makes a positive contribution, but you know it will succumb to the sheer intensity of the fruit over the years to come, the tannin balance calculated to the last ounce. The wine's best years are yet to come.
