Very intense black fruits – blueberry and cassis with underlying spicy French oak.
A dry, medium to full bodied style with fine, and well structured tannins that are harmoniously integrated with the French oak. Black fruit flavours of blueberry and cassis that linger across the mid palate. The wine has a sustained and balanced finish.
“Hand-picked from low-yielding estate vines. Bright, full purple-crimson, it is a full-bodied cabernet with layers of cassis fruit, and forceful tannins needing to soften substantially. Rob Diletti is obviously confident they will do so, and he knows better than I do.”
