Red currant, unsweetened chocolate, cedar and a touch of mint are overwhelmed by harsh green, unripe flavors. Sweet vanilla-flavored oak treatment and bitter vegetal tastes leave this...not recommended.
Violets and a slightly gamey mustiness, as well as the brick-red color, show a wine that aged gracefully. There is still black fruit but it does not overwhelm the more delicate floral flavors. This is a nice example of Margaret River wine, an Australian Cabernet more like Bordeaux than Napa.
