Country: Australia, Margaret River
Tasting Notes: Bright brick and maroon. Subdued at first, opening slowly to exotic floral, fruit and spice perfumes. Emerging from beneath are blackcurrant and violets from the Petit Verdot, complemented with Autumnal leaves, bay leaf, orange peel, dry oak spice and red gravel dust. Arrives fine and elegant on the palate but still with fruit power, breadth and weight in this fleshy ripe vintage. In classic style the fine, powdery tannins build to a dry finish leaving a breath of subdued fine fruit, florals and Summer forest characters.
Varietal: Blend of 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot, 12% Malbec
