Wine is balanced but on the dry side. This dark red wine featured a strong, steady nose of mild diesel, cooling acid, and sharp herbs (rosemary?) and in the mouth drying tannins and acids with flavor of ripe green and red plums and mild cherries. Finish similar to the taste.
A great wine, great value for money and a welcome change after trying too many different Cabernet's from WA.
