2012 Robert Oatley Finisterre Great Southern Cab

Expert Reviews

Wine Companion (2012 Vintage) says
Pure, medium-weight, well-powered fruit bearing a coat of cedary, smoky, slinky oak. Balance feels off at first but as it rests in the glass it (relatively) quickly sets itself to rights. Bay leaf, peppercorn, blackcurrant and redcurrant. Long finish, complete with ultra fine tannin.
