Full bright red with purple hue. Intense, dark red fruit and well integrated cedar and toasty oak. A more intense vintage than the 2008, with darker fruit character and a more weighty structure. A promising early start. The intense bouquet is complimented by plum and black cherry characters. A 'classy aussie' - just full of luscious ripe fruit.
