JO 95
Jeremy Oliver - Jeremy Oliver, March 2009
Very fine supple elegant and seamless this old-fashioned expression of the Australian Oburgundy' style is full to medium in weight with earthy leathery and chocolatey complexity beneath its briary expression of bright red... Very fine supple elegant and seamless this old-fashioned expression of the Australian Oburgundy' style is full to medium in weight with earthy leathery and chocolatey complexity beneath its briary expression of bright red and black fruits. Supported by fine cherry kernel-like tannins it's silky-smooth slightly minty and meaty finishing long and savoury with nuances of licorice raisins and menthol.

Lush creamy and sweet offering deep dark berry compote flavors velvety texture and mounting spiciness. The sweet dark berry notes echo through a strikingly long juicy and focused finish. Bet on this to improve for at least another decade but there's plenty of appeal right now. -Josh Raynolds
