Grand Gimblett Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 - Andrew Caillard writes "Medium deep crimson. Very attractive ripe dark cherry cassis mocha roasted chestnut aromas. Generously and chocolaty with voluminous dark cherry blackcurrant fruits, fine gravelly / velvety tannins, integrated mocha vanilla oak complexity and persistent mineral acidity. Finishes grippy firm with plentiful dark fruits. Very good."
Stoned Crow Syrah 2019 - Andrew Caillard writes "Medium deep crimson. Fragrant redcurrant, cranberry, pepper, sage, dried herb aromas with underlying mocha notes. Supple sweet cranberry, redcurrant, raspberry fruits with some blackberry, brambly notes, peppery nuances, plentiful fine sinewy long and refined tannins, some savoury roasted walnut, light marzipan notes. A fresh chalky finish with persistent juicy fruits. The barrel maturation characters and mid-palate viscosity really distinguish this wine."
The Nest Merlot Cabernets 2019 - Andrew Caillard writes "Deep crimson. Beautiful blackcurrant mulberry chinotto espresso aromas with praline, vanilla notes. Generous buoyant and supple with superb cassis, mulberry, boysenberry fruits, plentiful chalky tannins, attractive volume and underlying mocha, vanilla oak notes. Chocolaty / cedar firm at the finish with seductive dark fruits and linear fresh acidity. Superb density and mineral length. A standout wine."
