Producer: Clarendon Hills

Grape Type: Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: McLaren Vale
92(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2007
($75) Ruby-red. Slow-building, exotic bouquet of ripe cherry, blackcurrant, Cuban tobacco, violet and black pepper. Supple blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors gain depth with air, taking a liqueur-like dark berry turn but maintaining focus. Youthfully firm tannins add grip to the impressively long, juicy finish. Plenty sweet and seductive now but I'd give this some time in bottle to loosen up.
