95 Points James Halliday

Barossa cabernet offered little to inspire until the cool season of 2002, and since then its trajectory has been breathtaking - primarily because its most talented practitioners seem to have learnt to draw out a varietal integrity hitherto unknown in this warm region. A wine like this plays an important role in your wine repertoire because it''s inherently richer in its black fruit presence than, say, Coonawarra or Margaret River, yet - and this is crucial - it''s no less accurate in its varietal expression. Excellent blackcurrant, cassis and leaf fruit are the themes here, with tightly clenched tannins and outstanding persistence of high cocoa dark chocolate texture. Drink 2019 - 2024.

Bright, full crimson-purple; the final fermentation was completed in 100% new French oak, and then spent 26 months on lees; the oak is of high quality, and the cedary characters are obvious; the fruit needs time to assert itself, and in the meantime the wine is for oak lovers, for it has many attractive features. Drink to 2029.
