James Halliday Review Rated 95 How this was achieved in '11 is anyone's guess, other than vigilant viticulture and nerves of steel in delaying the picking. It has an extra edge to its varietal expression thanks to the cool temperatures (rain to one side), blackcurrant/cassis the driver, savory olive and bay leaf in the rear seat. A very good wine.
Wine Tasting Notes A plethora of Cabernet characters seemingly bursting from the glass, with typical notes of blackcurrant, violets and cedar enhanced by a twist of mint and herb from the cooler vintage. The palate is streamlined and focused. No blousiness here, just a beautiful line of fruit, some sweetness, a hint of chocolate and raspberry perhaps with a nutty savory edge. Tannins are chalky and long but the lasting impression is one of fruit. A style of Cabernet that one may not expect from McLaren Vale but extremely true to its varietal heritage.
