My Rating 83 Points.
Deep purple in color with a pinkish rim.
Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, licorice, light vanilla, wildflowers, a little barnyard, candy, metals, spices and peppercorn.
Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cranberries, red currants, oak, smoke, light vanilla, pine, spices, bitter vegetables and black pepper.
Short finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice Cabernet from Australia. Now, as a 2 year old, it is drinking nicely. Well balanced, simple and enjoyable by itself, and not offensive.
I paired it with cheeses and fruits.
Good for parties at a great price point. Good right out of the bottle, and gets a little more interesting after an hour in a decanter.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
