Tasting notes:
'Powerful yet refined 2017 from single block. Plenty fruit richness yet to emerge from still-evident sweet oak (American 75%, 40% new); not overly heavy thanks to well-proportioned structure, lively tannins ensuring benefits of long life.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (92/100)

'The wine is impressively opaque in colour with dark hues of purple and red. An intense blackberry and cherry bouquet is sensuously interlaced with sweet cloves and subtle vanilla oak. The bold fruit and subtle spice aromatics persist on the palate with additional undertones of roasted almonds and trimmed cigar. The palate is broad and rich with soft acidity and abundant, finely textured tannin. This is a luxurious and full flavoured modern wine.' – Winemaker
