Raspberry, red cherry, plum and blackcurrant, hints of strawberry and vanilla cream, rich toasty oak and dark chocolate. The wine's luscious fruit is framed by long textural Cabernet tannins integrated with balanced and elegant oak tannins. JSM is a wine of complexity and substance.

From the Winery
James Stanley Malpas who was a highly decorated Captain in the armed forces and the past owner of the land on which the Fox Creek vineyards are grown.
Shiraz components were selected for fruit richness and elegance. Cabernet Sauvignon for ripe round tannins and length and the Cabernet Franc batches were selected for aromatic lift and fruit weight. All varieties were matured in 1 to 4 year old French and American barrels for 19 months prior to blending.
91 Points - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front "McLaren Vale blend of cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and cabernet franc. Tangier than you normally expect of reds out of the Vale. It feels lively as a result, though a raft of firm, grainy tannin keeps everything well in check. Chocolate, orange peel, raspberry and sweet plum; all the flavours you expect are here … and more."
