Awards, Reviews, And Other Notes:

89 pts Tanzer/Vinous
Deep ruby. Fresh cherry and blackcurrant scents are complicated by dusty herbs and licorice. Black and blue fruit flavors are braced by zesty acidity, picking up bitter chocolate and anise accents with air. The gently smoky finish features easygoing tannins and good persistence. — Josh Raynolds

Winemaker Notes:

The Cabernet fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness in the cool of the night to preserve delicate fruit flavour & inhibit wild yeast fermentation. After crushing / destemming & innoculation with a pure yeast culture, fermentation took place in static fermenters (with auto-irrigators) & vinimatics. Post Primary ferment, the parcels were pressed & matured separately until blending.
