The bouquet has that elevated aroma unique to Frankland River, a purity of dark/cassis fruit, the palate following suit with one major exception: the powdery, persistent tannins on the finish. All this is encompassed in a perfectly balanced medium-bodied framework, guaranteeing a multi-decade life. Drink by: 2034; Price: $19.00; Alcohol: 13.5%; Rating: 94 Points & Special Value Star & Top 100 Wines of 2015 James Halliday

Quite a superb Frankland River cabernet whose heady bouquet of cassis, mulberries, dark cherries and plums reveals charming earthy and floral aspects plus some fresh cedar/vanilla oak. It’s long, smooth and polished, delivering a complete length of pristine fruit framed by a fine-grained chalkiness and finishing with a regional note of mint and menthol. Shapely and finely balanced, it’s set for long-term cellaring and represents an astonishing bargain. Drink to: 2026-2034+; Rating: 94 Points;  Jeremy Oliver
