Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2006 Vintage) says
If you think that has the big red all to itself, then you haven't been looking at the Hunter Valley of late. There's a lot of sweet, musky oak influence here, and a good deal of cherry-plummed fruit flavour too. There are earthen, gamey notes in the background and a rise of alcohol warmth as the wine leaves your mouth, though for the most part it's sweet, ripe and satisfying. Leaves a dry aftertaste of toast and earth.

Medium-bodied; leathery earthy regional notes starting to appear on the long palate and finish; ready sooner rather than later.

Savoury, earthy, strongly regional aromas; opens up to red and black fruits on the palate; good length.

This aged release was grown in the Broke sub-region of the Hunter Valley, and was made by Nick Patterson. Lots of malty, leathery, aged Hunter scents and flavours. You're either going to love or loathe this. Good sweet blackberried and minty notes and, despite its mature (or aged) flavours, it still seems fresh and tangy. Its tannins have mellowed and fallen into place nicely, and if you like the savoury, leathery style we reckon you'll enjoy this.
