Palate Profile

The wine has an enticing, lifted aroma of ripe blackcurrants, choc mint, subtle spice and a hint of dried tomato leaf. The overall nose character is one of richness and elegance.

On the palate it is a very well-balanced wine with ripe blackcurrant characters, along with chocolate and mint intermingling harmoniously with oak characters of cedar and subtle tobacco. There is an understated power to the wine, with layers of complexity building across the palate and then finishing elegantly with long, fine tannins. It is a generous wine yet retains poise and the elegance of great Cabernet Sauvignon

Critic Awards

The 2017 vintage has helped to tame the beast somewhat and Adam Eggins at (the Taylor family winery) has managed to craft an impressively elegant wine that is also built to last – a classic cabernet.

I like this. Clare does this unbridled mesh of old school after-dinner-mintiness, sapid blackcurrant, olive, bitter chocolate and sage notes, very well. Especially when in the right hands. As at this address. Highly dependable.

The bouquet is brightly berry-like and pepperminty, fresh and clean, the palate taut and brightly composed: a more elegant vintage of this wine I feel. The mintiness gives that cleansing feeling, like toothpaste does. A full-bodied, solidly-structured red that will reward cellaring.
