Peter Forrestal (2004 Vintage) says
This is an easy-drinking style with reasonable concentration to balance some extraction on the finish.

A pleasant approachable wine with red berry characters and smooth texture.

Although this wine is only two years old, it's already developing some maturity: it has a brick red colour, some secondary, cedary, minty smells and a drier-than-expected, elegant, soft flavour. We don't think this is a bad thing—it makes the wine very enjoyable now if you like lighter, or more medium-bodied reds—but we wouldn't recommend hanging on to it for much longer.

Charles Hargrave is making some excellent wines at the $14 price point for this Mildara Blass-owned McLaren Vale producer. We're impressed with the versatility of the Andrew Garrett team and are happy to recommend five out of six wines submitted for Quaff! An excellent result. This red is a blend of cabernet (90 per cent) and merlot (10 per cent) from Padthaway (74 per cent) and McLaren Vale (26 per cent) which has been aged in new and older American and French hogsheads for 15 months. It is a big, full-bodied, powerful red with some red berry and vanillin oak aromas, a supple, silky texture, and good, deep redcurrant, red cherry, juicy fruit under the oak and tannin. Quite tight and firm but with plenty of rich fruit to maintain reasonable balance.
