Cassegrain Edition Noir Durif

Cracka Review

This Durif is deep black in colour with an intense purple hue. Aromas of violets, espresso, and ripe blackberries evoke the essence of luxuriant, concentrated fruit.

On the palate, this vibrant wine displays flavours of mulberries, sweet cherries and mocha, entwined with star anise and an explosion of vanillan oak. A full-bodied wine with a firm structure, which supports a substantial lingering finish.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Usual strong colour; a sombre, dark fruit rendition of durif, black berries backed by fine tannins that give the wine excellent texture and length.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Dark, juicy, and Rill of black fruit; quite chewy, but not heavy, with well-handled oak on the palate.

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
A sweet, soft, commercial style with very good integration and balance between the oak, fruit, tannins and acidity. Rich and delicious. 3-5
