Mid to deep crimson in colour. Notes of black olive, geranium, red capsicum (peppers). Very dusty and herbaceous. More savoury than fruit driven. Next one in a year. Definitely the most lavish cellar door in Margaret River and a must visit if you are in the District.

Nose of blackberry and mulberry together with Margaret River herbaceousness. Charred oak notes as an accompaniment not dominating. Medium weight palate with a degree of elegance. Touch of astringency. Could have done with more mid palate fruit. Drink remaining 3 bottles in next few years. Definitely the most palatial cellar door and grounds in Margaret River and a must visit in a trip to the region. No expense spared.

Notes of mulberry cedar and tomato leaf. Medium + bodied with a hint of Capsicum amongst the restrained berry fruit. A nice balance between savoury and fruit characters all blended into a more restrained style with trademark Margaret River herbaceousness. A long future in front of it.

Excellent, excellent WA cabernet dominant blend; shows Margaret River's dominance of Australian cabernets; shows tobacco and black fruits flavours; undoubtedly now dry with a tannin backbone rarely found in Oz cabernet; then juicy, taut acids too to show further longevity; drink til 2025; little colour dropoff

Voyager's flagship red from the good 2005 vintage. Typical alluring Marg River Cab nose but a surprising light weight palate which brings into question it's longevity. This is the 2nd of 6 and I will need to drink the remainder in the 12 to 18 months. 17-

Super impressive and still looking mighty youthful. Just ripe fruits, earthy, touch of the Aussie bush and subtle oak notes all the mix. Acid and tannin still providing the scaffolding that we will see the age grandly. Persistent finish. Good stuff.

Singing. Still a big surge of wine, paired excellently with roasted lamb. Much ahead of it.

Tasted 24/24 after a spectacular 2001 Moss Wood - 2002 was a mild year in MR & it shows with the predominance of tannins over fruit - good but not great

2010 Voyager Cabernet Merlot: (co-) varietal and regional. A wine of finesse, fine-boned structure. Longevity assured.

This 2010 beauty is 92% Cab, 8% Merlot. 4 days open and still going strong. We love our side jobs.
