Handpicked Wines, Collection Series, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Margaret River, 2016
This blend offers choc-mint, damp tobacco, blackberry, mulberry, plum, malt, Turkish coffee and pencilly oak. Subtle, supple yet with undeniable richness and depth. Some complexity and the merest hint of development with truffle earthiness. Fine nebulous tannin structure will support for many more years. A very good wine indeed.
Rating: 18.75/20 (94/100)
