Our Review

This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Shiraz. The nose is subdued but offers hints of graphite and cedar, while the palate offers more depth than the nose suggests. It's ripe and ripe in style, with a rich, supple texture that's both plush and smooth. It finishes long, with a hint of dusty spice. Drink now–2025.
