This striking wine presents Cassis and dark fruit flavours expected from Cabernet, with subtle hints of tobacco and chocolate on the palate. After 12 months in French oak the soft silky tannins are finely balanced by the fruit flavours and subtle oak nuances.
''This 2015 release is on the mark again. It?s ripe and bold but mellow too; it?s already settling into a sound drinking zone. Blackberry, earth, leather, some undergrowth, some mocha, a eucalyptus lift. Strong tannin but it suits the full-bodied style.'' 93 Points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
The wine opens up with sweet black and red fruits of mulberry, black currant and cranberry, and a whiff of lavender. Medium bodied with soft velvety tannins, layers of fine fruit on the palate with chocolate and cedar notes from the oak. The finish is long and savoury.
