The secret to the success of the Coonawarra Wine Region is the rich, red soils of the Terra Rossa. These soils are the engine room of the region providing powerful and distinct wines.
Bright crimson red with deep purple hues. Blackcurrant and mulberry fruit provide the introduction to lingering chocolate and spicy fruit. Blackberry fruit and rich blackcurrant entice you into savouring the delicious oak flavours. The subtle tannins provide balance whilst the lingering chocolate adds an elegant finish. This is a classy wine.

There is an immediate impression of mint here, not surprising with Coonawarra Cabernet. Dark berry notes. A lick of oak, but it is well balanced. Flavours moving to dark chocolate and tobacco leaf. Middling length. Some grip, via fine tannins, and good balance. An attractive Cabernet which should drink well for some time. Score: 90/100 Best drinking: five to eight years. Alc: 13.5%
