Very complete wine for Moss Wood, and one of Margaret River's superior styles of cabernet; therefore one of the best in Australia; the "old guard" style which is commendable as more Margaret River makers take the "soft and juicy" road of wines eminently drinkable after a year; this has power and backbone; not elegant fruit; more an array of flavours-licorice, black fruit, cassis, tobacco, smidgin of herbs, all very good, oak is below, chunky fruit above; now this wine is permitted some comparison with the Medoc as it has weight; worth AUD 100; of interest alc has dropped to 13.5% from the usual 14.5%; a boost for longer term balance.

Lovely Cab. Very similar to D'Arenberg Cab Coppermibe road. Dark fruit, long finish with silky tannins. Recommended.
