Description

The 2012 Estate Reserve Red is a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Syrah, 11% Petit Verdot and 6% Merlot, matured in around 30% new oak for 18 months. It has an attractive nose of black fruit, given a nice herbal lift by touches of tobacco that come through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, thought perhaps just a little "soft" for my liking, with a conservative, Left Bank-like finish (this despite the contribution of the Syrah). Drink now and over the next six to seven years. Drinking range: 2018 - 2026.
