Spicy, ripe, full and powerful, as one would anticipate from a Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, one of the region's hallmark grapes and one of the grape's classic regions. This is sourced from numerous vineyard blocks in and around the subregion of Wilyabrup. Blocks are vinified separately, fermented in tank, and matured in French oak for 18 months. Blackberry, black cherry is pushed through a charcoal filter, with a perfume of dark florals, anise emerging on the back end. Tannins are present, but sueded, and take a backseat to the fruit. Ample perfume, dusky black fruit, peppery spice fill the ripe palate, one that holds its poised form to the vanilla and cardamom-kissed finish. This is ready for drinking now, though will hold with time in cellar.
