Classic old Bordeaux blend and what the Yarra Valley does best. Varietally driven nose of blackberry, black cherry with supporting autumnal leaf, earth and cedar oak. Medium bodied wine in which the floral and slightly herbal edge of Cabernet Franc seems to dominant. Merlot produces the middle palate fruit weight. Well balanced and elegant with noticeable acidity giving the wine life and lift. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon 13% Cabernet France, 13% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 9% Malbec

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
