Paul sourced the Cabernet fruit from one of Frankland Rivers premier vineyards. This is a complex red blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Cabernet Franc.
2014 was a sublime vintage. This wine is beautifully balanced and displays a perfect tannic structure. An exuberant and lifted nose displays vibrant red and purple fruits with a compote of fresh lavender. The palate has a good acidity with juicy fruit and grippy tannins to complete the picture.
Limited release and a bargain for a wine that could retail for $50 or more. Ultra premium fruit and a prodigious use of new oak (80%) has yielded a very high quality red wine that is drinking well now but will reward many years cellaring.from an excellent vintage.
