Roger Jones

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Delicate, savoury nose with a hint of wild brambles, rich and intense fruit, big ripe flavours, tannin is textured and the finish is very clean, with delicate soft oak coming through.

Pierre Mansour

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep. Unusual nose, relatively closed, tobacco almost rustic character. Round, fleshy, high acid, supported by layered fruit and dense tannins. Well balanced.

Anthony Rose

Tasting: Coonawarra & Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon

Mid-ruby in colour, pleasant red fruits fragrance, similarly quite attractive red berry fruits of slightly mulberry-sharp, with a tingling feeling on the tongue suggesting that it’s been a tad over-acidified to compensate for the ripeness.
