95% cabernet sauvignon, 5% tempranillo. All French oak, 10% new. Squeaky clean, brightly fruited, moreish, all manner of positives. Not to mention value. It tastes of boysenberries, violets, fragrant/blossomy herbs and kirsch, and if you can stop at one glass then you're better than I am. It's absolutely ready to rip right now. Drink to: 2026; Price: $25.00; Date Tasted: Mar 2018; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 95 Points & Special Value Star; James Halliday Wine Companion

Drinkability. This wine just makes you want to reach in for more. And more. It’s quite delicious. Hearty but bright, open-for-business but with the structure to hold. It tastes of kirsch, boysenberry, violets and assorted (blossomy) herbs, sweet and fresh-faced. It’s a pretty red wine, rarely a bad thing. Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $25; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2018 - 2025; Rated: 93 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front

Deep purple color. Attractive aromas and flavors of lemon-lavender talc, cassis-apricot jam, and chocolate nuts with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and an interesting, medium-length roasted nuts, minerals, and cedar mulch finish with chewy, firm tannins and heavy oak. A very chewy oaky cabernet with big flavors and tannins. Highly Recommended; Tastings

Here we go again with cabernet sauvignon ripping it up for value. In this case though, we have five per cent tempranillo included in the mix. This is a top-flight example of cabernet made in a bright and buoyant style, its blossomy aromatics and boysenberried palate placing seduction at the top of its ambitions. For drinking right now, it offers a world of pleasure. Price: $25.00;  Alcohol: 14.5%; 25 Great Reds Under $30; Wine Companion Magazine
