Still finding its feet but attractive flavours of blackcurrant, chocolate and dried herbs suggest that time will be kind. Classic tannin structure cements the impression.
The perfect illustration of Margaret River cabernet merlot. Stacks of ripe plush blackcurrant fruit with a liberal well-weighted dose of oak. It’s dense and concentrated with ripe firm tannins in support that don't detract from the suppleness of the palate. A pretty serious statement of this style.
