"94+ Points. Plenty of toasty savoury oak and baking spices, blackberry and blackcurrant, almond, aniseed and dried mint. Medium to full bodied, fresher red fruits in with the black, toast, 85% dark chocolate in both flavour and tannin texture, very firm acidity, though it feels well-settled, and a long finish slick with savoury oak, graphite tannin and ferrous character. Lively, earthy, individual. Region and grape wrestle for supremacy, though I feel both come out winners.

Open fermented, Basket Pressed and aged in new French oak for 22 months it is only made in years deemed worthy. This McLaren Vale Cabernet combines rich, vibrant fruit with great structure and integrity.
