97 Points James Halliday

Even the Socratic Brian Croser, ever-dissatisfied, must be quietly ecstatic over this wine, surely the best Petaluma yet. The epitome of elegance, with gently sweet cassis berry fruit inextricably woven through cedary oak, the palate silky smooth and supple, with perfectly ripened fruit and equally ripe, fine tannins. Drink to 2023.

It’s a lovely Coonawarra cabernet. It’s got lots of dark, curranty, toasty flavour and an appropriate smattering of leaf matter. There’s even a classic edge of cigar box to this wine. It’s tannin structure is excellent and its length is clean, good and long. It’s ready to drink from now – though that said, well stored and well stoppered bottles will age well for another ten years, easy. I wouldn’t say that it’s got a lot of wow factor but it is an excellent example of the joys of Petaluma cabernet, and of Coonawarra cabernet.
