This wine is opaque with a garnet hue. The nose is classic Aussie Cabernet Sauvignon- Blackberry, black currants, mint, eucalyptus, coffee, blueberry compote, açaí berry, bilberry and vanilla. A very inviting and complex nose to say the least. On the palate it is gorgeous. Ripe tannins and medium (+) acidity coat the black and blue fruit notes with emphasis on blueberry compote. The richness of the fruit and the oak influence make for a full bodied wine that has pronounced flavors. The minty component is delicious. The finish of this wine is quite long and very balanced as is the whole package. I am enjoying this immensely. It gets 93 points from me and for $30 it’s a 5 star effort to be drunk till 2027. We are pairing it with Bavette steak. Salut….
