”70/30% cabernet sauvignon/shiraz, matured in French oak (29% new) for 14 months. Blackberry, blackcurrant and black cherry fruits of impressive intensity are underscored with hints of baking spice, sage, graphite, cedar, licorice, dark chocolate and earth. There’s a dense black-fruit core and inky fruit depth to its form, chewy of tannin and bright of acid, with a flourish of briar-flecked blackberry on the finish.”
– Dave Brookes
