A highly expressive and fragrant nose with violet, lavender, bay leaf and fennel seed weaving through a dense core of blackcurrant and red cherry. Subtle anise, cumin, cedar, cracked coffee bean and cocoa lie in the background. The palate has purity and elegance; delicate layers of cherries, blackcurrants and Satsuma plums combine with a vibrant thread of natural acidity, giving direction and focus. Cinnamon and clove are present on the mid-palate which extends long with tightly coiled powdery tannins.

"Very deep red/purple colour. The bouquet is all about concentrated, perfectly-ripened cabernet fruit embellished with stylish oak. Cedar and berries. The wine is very intense and cast in an elegant but full-bodied style, with red berry fruit in abundance on the palate. The tannins are emphatic but fine and restrained, beautifully tailored. A lovely wine indeed - to cellar or enjoy now."

Huon Hooke, May 2018, The Real Review

96/100

"From the great 2014 vintage comes this largely cabernet-dominant wine using a small amount of malbec. Gorgeous perfumes of tobacco leaf, and a trace of distinctive varietal bay leaf. The palate is stunning, with a great fruit, oak and tannin balance. There are chalky tannins to build structure, yet the fruit sweetness is retained. An elegant and most stylish cabernet which is as good as any from Leeuwin. "
