A delightful Aussie Cab. Lived up to its ratings. Dense black fruit, with swirls of Cranberry and tobacco, cedar box.

Deep and dark in color, clear and aromatic. Hard to tell there's as much age as the vintage because I wasn't seeing any orange or brown. Aromatic with smoke, bell peppers, cedar/oak, cherry and raspberry. The fruit was last to come on the nose. This wine was very bright and vibrant on the palate. Medium-sweet with possible RS, medium and round tannins, flavorful and a nice long finish.

An elegant Australian CS, modern, polished and well appreciated by critics (scores in Australia of up to 95 points). I was expecting a more deep and intense wine, as I had previous versions, maybe the wine went for a dump period, or just needed decanting. Deep red color, nose full of red current, black current, blueberries, a touch of cherries, sweet spices and mocha, medium to full body with mild tannins a vibrant acidity. Interesting yet lacking complexity. My score 88, drink 2015 -2020.

A nice Australian CS, great for a casual dinner, and seems quit young given the vintage. Deep dark color, nose full of sun, black fruits, a touch of mineral, black current, medium body, with mild tannins, a pleasant finish. My score 87, drink to 2019

2006 vintage - screams MR Cabernet on the nose - a little light in body but very acceptable

Exquisite Cabernet. When you see talk of poise, balance and such, see hear as a definition.

Very savoury dried herb and leaf on the nose. Super fine, soft and thick tannin structure. Definite chocolate notes in a nice long and rich finish. Very elegant and soft. Very good.

Drank like it was 7 years younger. Really beautiful expression of the variety.

Dried earth, leather, Tobacco leaf and eucalyptus with rich dark fruit and loads of graphite minerality. Structure and balance in tact, drinking beautifully now.
