“Another immensely powerful blockbuster from this Blackwood site. Powerhouse packed with stacks of ripe super concentrated Cabernet fruit. A distinct minty aroma lifts from the dark black olive and blackcurrant fruits. Firm tannins and a decent whack of oak have been needed to harness this through to its long finish. Cellar 12 years.” - Ray Jordan, Wine Guide 2016
Region: Blackwood River Valley, Western Australia
Units Per Case: 6
Crimson black a super concentrated nose of cassis and blackcurrant with some cool climate spearmint and olive notes. Concentrated full Cabernet palate with voluptuous blackcurrant and blueberry and a dark gravel earth note holding the alcohol and super intense tannins in check. A long lingering finish guarantees extended cellaring. Cellar for 20+ years.
