“A robust and imposing red. Black and red berries, ripe and massively fruited, balanced at the same time. A measured expression of a variety often hard to tame. Kudos.”
90 points SILVER - Nick Butler, The Real Review
"This is a good, solid red. Sturdy, sweet-fruited, generously oaked. Toast and tar, chocolate and dust, blackberry. It will drink well over the next decade or more."
92 points - Campbell Mattinson, www.winefront.com.au

VINEYARD REGION: Alpine Valleys
THE WINE: This wine displays a deep inky red colour. The nose shows intense spice, vanilla, raisins, fruitcake and blood plums. These complex aromas lead to a palate of intense spicy ripe plum characters with complex toasty oak. This wine is weighty and robust with harmonious tannins.
FOOD MATCHES: Try with beef cheeks and roasted parsnip.
