Peccavi, Margaret River 2008
Decanter average score: 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores: RJ 18.5 PM 17 AR 17
Appealing nose of mocha – gentle and fine. Rich in cassis fruit concentration in a powerful dimension that’s full-flavoured and rich rather than complex. Great, luxurious, toasty, creamy vanilla ripple coming through. Generous and intense.
