Description

Raymond Chan writes "Very dark, near impenetrable black-red colour with a slightly lighter edge with purple hues.  The nose is very tightly bound and concentrated with a firm and intensely packed core of ripe blackberry  fruit with black plums and blackcurrants.  The nose is refined in expression and has richness with poise, showing a steely, mineral edge.  This is still taut and unyielding, but aeration releases a refined layering of blackcurrants and cassis.  Full-bodied, the palate has rich, concentrated and intense flavours of ripe blackcurrant fruit with blackberries and cassis liqueur, fine aromatic herbs and subtle iron-earth elements.  The mouthfeel is beautifully vibrant and bright, and grows in richness, freshness and energy.  The palate possesses very fine-grained tannin extraction, the structure refined, but with considerable grip and texture.  The acidity lends lovely vitality and tension, and the wine carries to a very long, powerful finish of blackcurrants, blackberries and cassis.  This is a very rich and tightly bound, concentrated Cabernet Sauvignon blend with vibrant blackcurrant and blackberry fruit, and refined tannin grip and structure, and great length.  Match with grilled and roasted lamb or beef dishes over the next 10-15+ years.  A blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc from estate vineyards in the Gimblett Gravels, fermented to 14.2% alc., the wine aged 24 months in 35% new oak.  300 bottles made.  19.5+/20  "
