This is your great Aussie blend from a great Aussie red producer and this wine does bring a lot. There is a huge amount of darkness in this wine with a little leaf and chocolate action coming into play. The flavour really hits you hard on the palate but the tannins pull it very long in your mouth. For an 08 this is really balanced with no over ripe flavours but there is a little warmth.
Drink: give it a few more years in the cellar and then go for your life.
