AROMA The bouquet shows concentrated aromas of plums, scorched earth, licorice, mint, and chocolate whilst exhibiting trademark McLaren Vale characters of coffee and mocha. PALATE The mouth feel and texture is immediate with concentrated flavours of cola, plum and blackcurrant along a vibrant and linear backbone. The mid palate shows terrific focus, the finish balanced by impeccable tannin and acid structure. WINEMAKING The grapes were crushed into and fermented in open top potters, with regular pump overs three times daily to extract colour and tannin. The grapes were then pressed and the wine was transferred to tank and then racked to barrel of oak maturation. WINE SPECATOR INSIDER - JULY 9, 2008 Big, bold and expressive, with some unexpected transparency to the black cherry, raspberry, red plum and Asian spice aromas and flavors, lingering on the open-textured finish. The aftertaste just keeps coming. Drink now through 2015.—H.S. (hide)

    (2003 Vintage) Deep glass-staining ruby. Dense, liqueur-like aromas of blackberry, black cherry, plum, coffee candy, and licorice. Full and sweet but also very fresh, with lively blackcurrant and blackberry flavors ...
