Beautiful deep ruby colour, matching its intense dark fruit aromatics, chocolate and herbs. Layered on the palate with flavours of rich berries, sage and rosemary. Firm delicate tannins give this wine a lasting finish with the hint of savoury oak. Great accompaniment to game and red meats, hearty warm dishes, or even the next guest at your dinner party.
From the Winery
This wine is a deep red colour with a ruby hue. Intense dark fruit aromatics of blackberry and blackcurrant are complimented with richer notes of dark mint chocolate and roasting herbs. The palate is vibrant, with blackberry flavours and a layering of sage and rosemary. Firm, fine tannin frames a long, persistent finish of bright berry fruits and a touch of savoury oak toast.
94 Points - James Halliday, The Wine Companion "More elegant than powerful but there's yet plenty of fruit flavour. Leather, spice, black cherry and blackberry, with bay leaf and coffee grounds on back-up vocals. It will mature reliably well."
94 Points - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front "This vintage the first where Cabernet is the dominant partner in the blend, and it’s pretty clear that 2013 was a very good vintage for Clare Valley reds in general. Screwcap now. Peter Barry is one of the funniest people in Australian wine, and right up there with Bruce Tyrrell on the after (and during) dinner circuit. Black fruit, dark mint chocolate, sage, spice and toasty oak. Full bodied, but not heavy, flush with firm tannin, fresh blackberries, aromatic herbs and toasty savoury oak, red fruit bobs up on a long bright finish."
