Red fruited beauty. I'm always taken aback by how this winery knows how to withhold over manipulating a wine. Very beautiful.

Been looking forward to this one. Initially tight and closed on the nose. Beautiful violet colour and comes to life after 2 hours in the decanter. Lots of depth and structure but not overly sweet like some extracted wines. Smooth with blackcurrant, cherry, lavender and marshmallow on the palate. Tannins are supporting the wine but are subtly integrated and allow the finish to be long and rich. I’m sure it’s going to get better and better as the evening progresses but at the moment it may be gone before the last rays of sun disappear on the horizon, highly recommended for now and the future.

Elegant aromas of dark fruit and spice on the nose. A full bodied wine with excellent structure that should allow this to be aged for a long time. The fruit comes thru without going overboard. Lots of dark plums, blueberries, figs, and expresso with a very nice element of oak. The finish is fabulous with an elegant expression of spice (maybe cinnamon or nutmeg) and dark fruit. A really nice wine. We will be visiting the winery next Monday. I can’t wait!

Great tour and joined the Brasas Wine Society. Patiently waiting to open one of these beauties (Cabs) up after almost a year. Deep and dark. Fruit and pleasant iodine with a substantial mouth feel. The wine almost feels energetic. Can't wait to see how these age.
