A blend of Cabernet and Cabernet Franc (82/18), 20% whole bunches were used. A riot of choc mint and blackberries, barbecued and roasted capsicums add some neat savoury appeal. Long and drawn out, there is a lot to like about its flow and carry. Possessing a cooling presence in the mouth, it feels sophisticated without the high brow. A fabulous wine and one that will reward medium term cellaring, this is a label well worth putting on your radar.
Drink to eight years.
