Enticing and fresh on the nos with lifted aromas of spice, plums and dark berries are immediately attractive. On the palate, the wine is instantly recognizable as Margaret River. The palate is rich and generous with a luscious mouth filling texture and silky smooth tannins. Balanced throughout the journey, it finishes attractive and long.
Deep, youthful red/purple colour. The bouquet is fresh and bright, with spicy, floral and star anise aromas, while the palate is full-bodied, deep and well concentrated, with abundant firm tannins backing up. Classic cassis and violet cabernet flavours, deep-set. Long carry; firm, dry tannin finish. This promises a long and productive lifespan.

A wonderfully expressed Bordeaux-style red; the fragrant bouquet shows blackcurrant, dark plum, thyme, cedar and olive characters, leading to a flavoursome palate that is supple and lingering. It is beautifully fruited and brilliantly structured by fine, grainy tannins, finishing long and pleasingly dry. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdict.
