(From 2012 Vintage) Deep colour; the bouquet adds to the expectation with sweet leather a la Hunter Valley, licorice and a caravan of spices. The sheer finesse of the palate brings the wheel full circle; French oak adds to the cedary/savoury/spicy elements behind blackberry and plum fruit.
Deep plum red; a classic Bin 389 nose with massive fruit, smoky oak, tobacco leaf complemented by floral and vanilla bean notes. A full bodied wine. A large burst of concentrated spicy, plummy Cabernet and Shiraz fruit hangs on the mid-palate, leading to a finish that reveals spicy oak and licorice, with lingering flavours of chocolate and fruit.
