Rich cassis and lifted violet aromas lead into spiced clove, mocha and cedary oak. Blackcurrant and blueberry flavours give way to savoury notes of black olive, coffee and dark cocoa. Medium bodied with fine tannins, delivering a long length and a persistent finish. 18 months in French oak. Cellaring potential of 5-8 years 13.5% Alc/Vol.
"Blackcurrant and red berries, a little cocoa, appropriate leafy and tobacco notes, some perfume. Medium-bodied, good crunch and freshness, light grip to chalky tannin, currants and ripe raspberry, with a crisp and firm finish of good length. Nicely done. Drinks very well. Has charm, too." - 92 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
"This has been extracted with precision and early to mid-term drinking in mind, without sacrificing flavour or the integrity of cabernet's inherent graphite tannic strictures. There is a dollop of merlot (11%) and franc (4%) for fill and lift respectively. 18 months in quality oak. Delicious. Currant and berry fruit. Hedgerow tannins, gently guiding. This is gorgeous Yarra cabernet The wont: sensitive extraction." - 94 points, Ned Goodwin, 2021 Wine Companion
