Roger Jones

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Soft aromas of mocha and coffee. On the palate a rich espresso underlying flavour with fresh fruit riding on top, a deep sensual wine, with lots happening in the glass, still quite stalky on finish.

Pierre Mansour

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Very deep, brick red rim. Classy, fragrant, tobacco nose, herbaceous lift too. Full, rich palate, dense, chewy tannins, substantial, bold finish. Alcoholic & big. Modern.

Anthony Rose

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Good colour, quite evolved, shading to garnet, briary herbal undertones on the nose; some attractive chocolate and fruit richness on the palate, now showing evolved, almost leathery secondary characters but with fair concentration and nicely layered tannins, and freshness.
