Reds look to have deep colours and nice, not too ripe flavour profiles with more medium body structure. Tannin ripeness was definitely delayed and while tannins show a little more astringency than ideal, similar to 2004 they should balance out with oak treatment and time.

Wine EnthusiastThis isn't Coonawarra's most elegant wine, but it certainly doesn't lack for character or concentration. Menthol, vanilla, cedar and cassis deliver plenty of flavor in this chunky, full-bodied Cabernet. Charred, mocha-like notes emerge on the long, intense finish. Drink now-2025.

Wine SpectatorMint and eucalyptus notes are fragrant and provide a fresh backdrop for the crisp cherry and pomegranate flavors. Finishes taut. Drink now through 2030. 2,600 cases made.
