A massive yet balanced and structured Australian Cab. The nose is loaded with cassis, blackberry jam, mint/eucalyptus, and cocoa, but also features prune, raisin, burnt sugar, vanilla, green bell pepper, smoke, cedar, and a touch of black pepper. Not at all flabby on the palate. Great concentration. Some black cherry, menthol, clove, and black tea emerge on the palate. Great length, finishing with blackberry, cherry, prune, menthol, and mint/eucalyptus.
