Dark in color with a nose of black berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays some lovely rich black cherries, and even a little blueberries. The wine is one the lighter side of medium in length on the finish with some tannins coming through and even a hint of pepper. This is definitely more of a fruit forward cab made in more of a traditional Aussie style. I would give it an 89. Yumm.
