Cracka Review

Who doesn’t love top drawer West Aussie Cabernet with almost a decade in the cellar? The youthful puppy fat goes, leaving layers of bright cassis fruit with that classic Cabernet cedar and cigar box edge.

This is a great aged West Australian Cabernet with a bag full of deserved accolades - including the National Wine Show Cabernet Sauvignon Trophy, where it beat out the best in the land.

With 95 points from Huon Hooke, 94 from Ray Jordan, 93 from Nick Stock plus a spot in the Jimmy Watson Trophy final, this nearly ten-year-old Margaret River Cabernet is at the peak of its powers - and should go for at least five years more too.

Winemaker's Notes

Lifted aroma with dark cherry and forest fruit enhanced by cedar and vanilla notes. Palate shows lovely primary fruits and attractive firm but supple tannins which will develop more chocolate and earthy characters with bottle time.
