...very impressively complete feel, a hallmark of the 2018 vintage wines, and there’s a myriad of characters with cabernet’s cedary and gently herbal notes sitting atop a core of rich red-plum and dark-berry shiraz fruit aromas. So integrated. The palate has a very silky texture, so plush and polished with a wealth of rich and intense dark-plum, dark-berry and blackcurrant flavors. The oak is completely soaked with ripe, fresh fruit. This is a great Bin 389.
...Full-bodied, with cherry flesh complementing the sterner cassis and tobacco notes, it's supple enough to be approachable now, yet with the concentration and requisite dusty tannins on the long finish...
Lovely combination of flavours, with the cassis of Cabernet and the bramble of Shiraz getting on famously. Wrapped in delicious sweet oak scent which is tempered by bitter black-olive flavour and bright acid. Floral fragrance too, and super-fine tannins. A star of the range.
