Smooth and supple without being over the top this one shows nice balance which many don’t expect coming out of Australia in this category. A well-made wine that is easy to drink and enjoyable but doesn’t necessarily excite. At $16 I’m not likely to buy again but wouldn’t stop you from doing so. And for those interested in how it is aging I’d say plenty well. Seems this has another 4+ years at minimum in it…
Wine Geek Notes: Imported by Old Bridge Cellars, Aged in 20% new French Oak
Blackberry, vanilla, indistinguishable herbs and white pepper on the nose. Nice mouthfeel and balance with a soft and well integrated tannic structure. Ripe and somewhat earthy cherry flavor mid palate. Medium length finish with a quick spicy transition. Paired with grilled rib eye steaks and string beans.
