Lavish Cabernet with SIX Gold - plus 93, 94 & 95 points!
"Hand-picked, crushed, open-fermented, 14 days on skins, 18 months in French oak (mainly used). This is a deadly serious cabernet in traditional pre-Parker style, drawing saliva from the mouth with its blackcurrant and dried bay leaf flavours coupled with very firm (but not dry) tannins. Most definitely demands respect." James Halliday.
