Recommended by Winestate Magazine

Awarded 3½ stars in the Winestate Magazine June 2012 New Releases tasting. Michael Cooper had this to say:

 

"Deeply coloured blend of merlot (71%), malbec (16%) and cabernet sauvignon (13%), with a fragrant, plummy, slightly nutty bouquet.  Full-bodied and fruit-packed, in a sturdy, sweet-fruited style with moderate complexity and good tannin support.  Drink now or cellar.  Verging on four stars."

 

A classic example of the stunning 2010 vintage, with excellent concentration and deep colour. Flavours of ripe black cherries, Marzipan, almond, fruitcake, mingle with well balanced oak. Ripe, rich texture with a good, strong, full initial mouthfeel, and a pleasant, long finish.
