Roger Jones

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Liquorice on nose, fruit is behind the oak, very good wine although I am failing to get the full benefits of this.

Pierre Mansour

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep. Dusty, spicy nose. Punchy, structured palate, firm tannins, balancing acidity with medium length.

Anthony Rose

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep colour, extremely pungent mint and eucalyptus on the nose that carries through to the palate which is quite tart and chunky at the same time; rather overwhelmed overall by the strident eucalyptus character.
