Good depth of colour with a trace of purple lingering; there are black fruit, sump-oil and soy sauce aromas, the palate full bodied and savoury with lashings of supple powdery tannins. A big wine but also a softie, with abundant fleshiness and it's starting to show some maturity in its flavours. Some alcohol warmth, but acceptable. It has concentration, drive, length and richness.

You don’t often see the combination of McLaren Vale and Coonawarra but it works here to provide serious power and quality. Aromas are bold yet coiled for ageability showing cassis, mulberry, blackberry and cocoa, all well integrated with toasty oak. McLaren Vale then comes out to play with waves of dark berry flavour before Coonawarra tannins whip in to tighten up the finish. It’s the ultra-sustained length, finish and structure that show this wine has some serious class.
