Tasted as barrel sample. Dark, dense and powerful red with an array of ripe berry/black currant, cedar and black olive flavours. A very classy Cabernet blend that clearly has plenty fo cellaring potential thanks to a backbone of firm, ripe tannins.
Tasted: Apr 2008 Closure: S'cap Average price: NZD $45 (~USD $37)
