Review
Deep red/purple colour, with a similarly profound bouquet of ironstone mineral notes and black berry fruits. Hints of creosote. Serious cabernet here, showing excellent ripeness. The palate is full-bodied, high-extract and dense, with a little chewiness in the tannins. A big cabernet for this region, and outstanding value. It will richly reward patient cellaring.
