The traditional Aussie blend of Cabernet and Shiraz from a very fine vintage and a region which can take advantage of both. The grapes come from the best selected rows with a combination of their Ironstone, War Horse and Basket Weave vineyards. Many of the rows are more than fifty years in age. This is a bright, yet deep red. There are early hints of maturity but it is a wine that still has years ahead of it. Notes of chocolate, blackberry, leather and dry herbs here, with dark chocolate really coming to the fore on the palate. Notes of cloves, as well. Good acidity, decent length and slightly furry tannins. It has power, concentration and focus. Big and bold in style, this is still very young so ten to fifteen years in a good cellar will be no trouble.
