Here is a living, breathing example of all that is Coonawarra with the medium body, elegant structure and perfumed fruit carrying the indelible stamp of the region. The wine has supple floral fruit characters with a leafy blackcurrant and tobacco leaf nuance. Now that’s cabernet. The palate is so elegant and supple but with a tight core of fruit, oak and tannin working in harmony to create the long sleek graceful lines. Then the slightly minerally character captures cabernet perfectly. Dedicated to Jim Brand who died of cancer at 52.
