Generous, harmonious and smooth, the 2000 vintage of this Hawke's Bay red was matured for 15 months in 'predominantly' French oak barriques. It's a full-coloured, upfront style with a perfumed bouquet of sweet oak and a generous palate with lots of berryish, spicy flavour.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Maturing well, the 1998 vintage is a Hawke's Bay blend of 90 per cent Merlot and 10 per cent Cabernet Franc, matured for 17 months in French oak barriques (75 per cent new). The colour is bold and bright; the palate is powerful and highly concentrated, with a surge of warm blackcurrant, plum and spice characters seasoned with nutty oak, impressive complexity and chewy, ripe tannins. A serious, classy, firmly structured red, it's best cellared to 2002 onwards.

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
A serious Hawke's Bay red for cellaring, the 1997 vintage was matured for 15 months in French oak barriques (mostly new). It's a sturdy, highly concentrated wine with deep colour, mouthfilling body and rich, warm flavours, braced by chewy tannins. Open mid-2000 onwards.
