Roger Jones

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Toasted brown bread on nose. Very dry in the mouth, looks like a great wine evolving with some really good delicate flavours but i would like to see more fruit at the front.

Pierre Mansour

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Very deep, opaque appearance. Perfumed, cassis, eucalyptus nose, attractive & polished. Classic Coonawarra intensity of fruit, riipe velvety tannins. A very complete & powerful red with excellent balance. Well made.

Anthony Rose

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Good bright vivid colour for a four year old, intense cassis and cola-spicy aromas, lovely richly concentrated cassis fruit opulence bisected by bright acidity and infused with a lively herbal undertone that brings freshness, interest and personality to the dark berry fruitiness on display here; very well-crafted and intense with the potential to soften down and develop greater complexity with age.
