My final bottle of 6 I bought on release and the best. Deep crimson in colour - quite dark for 19 years of age. Notes of violets and all the classic Cabernet descriptors of Bay leaf and cassis. On the palate a beautiful mature Cabernet blend at the peak of its powers. Really enjoyed this. Jancis Robinson MW compared this to Margaux. A tradition of female Wine making with Di Cullen as Winemaker from 1971 until 1989 when daughter Vanya took over and continues to this day. Consistently one of Margaret River’s better Cabernets.

Cedary notes with undergrowth and a touch of asparagus. Soft silky yet assertive tannins if that makes sense. Detuned but authorative if that makes sense. A beguiling Wine which does make sense of these statements. This is very Bordelaise but personally I prefer some of the bolder masculine expressions in Wilyabrup like Woodlands and Moss Wood. So well balanced that nothing stands out. At 18 years old I will be drinking the last one when 20 in 2019.

Fantastic mature fruit bouquet with a hint of Eukalyptus. Superb on the palate, well integrated tannins, more berry fruit and mint, velvety and very balanced. Fantastic wine.
