Details

"A true Reserve from the best rows planted 30 years ago, picked 20 Mar, in a single open fermenter, pressed before dryness to finish fermentation in new French hogsheads, matured for 29 months. This really is a beautiful cabernet, the barrels made by Dargaud & Jaegle (which I used at Coldstream Hills from '85 through to '96) that impart less oak flavour than other coopers. It is totally integrated with the opulent cassis fruit." Drink by 2043. 97 Points!
