The Wine:
Aromas of dark chocolate and blackberry pie with herbal touches of mint, cedar and tobacco come together in the balanced palate that is fine and fresh. An elegant savoury wine that has benefited from some years in the cellar.

The Review:
Jane Faulkner, Wine Companion - 95pts
"Dark garnet with a purple hue; while the aromatics are lively, the palate has clamped shut, no matter the hallmarks of a superb wine are here. Fragrant cassis, tobacco, black olives, eucalypt and black plums dipped in chocolate with some fruit sweetness getting through on the firm palate, but the tannins are powdery yet intense and the oak (70% new) a little unforgiving."
