Garnet red color. An aromatic umbrella sheltering all things cabernet. An immediate ascent of violet, mulberry leaf - laced with star anise, cinnamon, orange zest. Followed by varietal wafts of tomato ketchup, soy, iodine, and oddly, a Chinese spice/stock marinade. Not yet exiting this theme - sweet plum sauce, hoisin and roast duck crackling trepidatiously follows. On the palate immediately more Tuscan than Bordeaux in cabernet character. Nevertheless, still very (South) Australian. Savoury, with a sour cherry grip ... and subtle cherry pip oak influence.Mouth-watering and succulent, yet still linear - tempered by appetizing angular tannins. Darker fruits and green Spanish (stuffed) olive flavours further define the vintage, style.Neither a 2010 nor 2016 ... and not trying to be!

Shows appealing density and a savory thread, featuring rosemary, sage and loam details that mingle with firm currant and dried cherry flavors. Herbal shadings gain traction on the finish along with the dense tannins, adding an appealing fresh green note. Drink now through 2033. 13,057 cases imported.

Another beautiful effort in the lineup this year is the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407, which is a multi-region cuvée brought up in both French and American oak hogsheads. Classic notes of blackcurrants and cassis interwoven with hints of dill, tobacco, and graphite all flow to a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that's fabulously balanced, with good acidity as well as ripe tannins. Give bottles another year or two and it should cruise for a decade or more.
