A very concentrated cassis nose with a rich, dense and sweet-fruited palate. There is elegance here, albeit on the riper end of the scale. Forward, decadent and plush. With food, the tannins come to the fore and the palate lengthens, allowing more complexity to express itself.

Cedary, eucalypt aromas. Big plush and cedary with a brooding core of blackcurrant and cedary overtones. The wine remained unchanged when paired with the beef ribs.

Lifted and pure. Very attractive. Palate is fresh and vibrant. Savoury and rich with the dish without becoming sweet in appearance. Lovely vibrant Cabernet

Brooding dried herb and cassis aromas. The palate is medium to full bodied, well-structured and balanced. The tannins and acid works well to focus the palate length. The pairing worked well. The bright cassis and dried herbs aromas / flavours are exposed. The strong tannins cutting the beef texture well.

Dusty earthy cigar box, sweet black fruit on the nose, rich, ripe and powerful, with a tannin structure to support the oak

Intense ruby red with slight brown tints. Lovely blackcurrant jubes, hints of eucalypt and spice. Black olive, liquorice, almost velvety tannin and a nice spicy fruit finish. Good balance, but some bitter tannins almost pop out.

Castelaeo. Good colur. Bright jubey fruit nose that is juicy, vibrant, primary and rich. Palate relies on fruit sweetness, a little oak and associated tannin to drive it. No layers. Very primary. With Food ? simple jube conflicts with food. Too simple.
