2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
A complex array of dark berry fruit, briary and earthy notes, crushed dark flowers, dark chocolate and bay leaf.
Still incredibly youthful dark cassis and red berry fruit, earthy, gravelly notes, hints of dark chocolate and bay leaf adding a savoury element to the wine. Balanced, rich and with extraordinary length, the wine is supported by fine grained, layered tannins and seamlessly integrated French oak.
Roasted or sous-vide red meat cooked to just medium-rare served with a variety of mushrooms and vegetables of various textures and preparations to build up complexity.

AccoladesThe West Australian Wine Guide 2015The extra time in bottle has helped this wine immeasurably. It's really come into its own and is drinking superbly. Classic cabernet with power and structure yet delivered with such poise and refined elegance. The fine grained tannins are a feature contributing to the palate performance. Love the fragrance and perfume which sets this up wonderfully. 97/100.
