Appearance: Clear, bright, deep red / purple with a crimson hue.
Nose: Strong varietal definition including blackberry and cassis fruits with well-integrated cedary oak.
Palate: Medium to full-bodied wine with typical sub district blueberry, olive, mint and spice characters. A dried herb finish is well supported by fine grainy tannins and French oak.
Cellaring: Enjoy on release or cellar for eight to ten years from release (November 2018).
"Boysenberry ripple, redcurrant, mint nougat, cedar and dried herbs. Medium-weight, grainy tannin, quite firm acidity, a bit of understatement, dusty tannin and dried herb to close. Good, but suspect needs another year or two to settle down. 92 points." - Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au, Jan 2019
