Medium ruby to garnet in colour with a medium+ intensity on the nose.
Consistently reliable good taste.
Positives: Cedar, sandalwood, plums, cherry, a touch of vanilla bean, leather, cinnamon, all spice, red peppers, black olives & raspberry. Medium to full body with medium+ tannins, good acidy & long length.
Interesting Points: Check out my review 25 June 2012 for the 2006 vintage. You'll notice that it's $2 more for the 2007. One of my favourite labels; very classic looking.
Drink now or over the next 3 years on its own or pair it with grilled lamb chops.

Ruby red with a bit of garnet in colour. Strong nose of blackberry, spice, and cedar. Medium + body, with chalky tannins. Flavours are similar to the nose with a little more plum and earthiness. Long finish.
Had this with a rack of lamb and it was an excellent pairing.
Tasted September 2012.
