This opens with a funky nose of earthy notes, tapenade and grilled herb aromas. It spills over the palate with a racy, mouth-watering wash of sour cherry and red currant garnished with spice, vanilla and savory bits. It's medium bodied with good texture and a substantial finish garnished with good acidity and a lick of tannin - the tannin's easily ameliorated with a three-hour aeration/decant. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5). (Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, April 8, 2016)
This dry, full-bodied and woody red displays a complex and intense nose. On the palate, its refreshing acidity, fleshy tannins, and broad texture precede a long finish.
Aromas of blackberry, cocoa and cedar with blackcherry, vanilla and cassis flavours.
Aromas of blackberry, cocoa and cedar lead to a rich, layered mouth feel, replete with black cherry, vanilla and cassis, and structured with lush, mature tannins. Enjoy this seductive cabernet sauvignon now and over the next several years.
