James Suckling Reivew
Rated 97
A blend of 57% cabernet sauvignon and 43% shiraz, this has a very impressively complete feel, a hallmark of the 2018 vintage wines, and there's a myriad of characters with cabernet's cedary and gently herbal notes sitting atop a core of rich red-plum and dark-berry shiraz fruit aromas. So integrated. The palate has a very silky texture, so plush and polished with a wealth of rich and intense dark-plum, dark-berry and blackcurrant flavors. The oak is completely soaked with ripe, fresh fruit. This is a great Bin 389. Drink over the next two decades.


Higher notes reveal custard tart and brule, couting meating pan-scrapings and juices. Yet beneath, a darker edge - black pudding, sweetbread, asphalt. Morever, not just an "offal" offering - an aromatic veil of satsuma plum, fig and quince paste aromatics liberally sprinkled above. A tasted continuum of assorted flavors and textures. A spoil of fruits meshed with a grain-like paste. At once chewy and succulent, heightened by a mouth-watering acidity and overt elongated tannins. The oak is barely perceivable.
