AWARDS & REVIEWS - CABERNET MERLOT

2008 Cabernet Merlot:

93 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2012 Edition
"Medium red-purple; an elegant, understated, medium-bodied wine that has attractive red and black cherry, blackcurrant and spice flavours, the tannins fine, the oak positive but balanced. To 2020."

2005 Cabernet Merlot:

лллл 2009 Winestate Magazine

88 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2009 Edition
"Solid regional expression; blackcurrant and cassis fruit offset by moderately firm, slightly drying tannins. To 2014."
 

2004 Cabernet Merlot:

89 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2008 Edition
"Well balanced and structured; the fruit flavours are restrained rather than effusive, as are the ripe tannins; best described - not unkindly - as a food wine. To 2015."

2003 Cabernet Merlot:

89 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2007 Edition
"Well balanced and structured; the fruit flavours are restrained rather than effusive, as are the ripe tannins; best described - not unkindly - as a food wine. To 2015."

88 Pts - Ray Jordan's WA Guide to Wine 2005/2006

ллл   2006 Winestate Magazine (Recommended) 

2002 Cabernet Merlot:

ллллл   2005 Winestate Magazine
"Huge oak/mulberry and redcurrant nose with a sweet lift. Excellent palate style - big fruit, big tannins, big oak. Has great depth and strength of flavours."

90 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2006 Edition
"Medium-bodied; elegant blackcurrant and savoury mix; some Bordeaux qualities; balanced tannins and oak. Quality cork."

90 Pts - Campbell Mattinson, 2005 Sommelier Magazine
"(A) fine elegant, varietal red. Full of dust and mulch, ash and pristine, berried fruit; it's blessed with all of  complexity, length and cool fruit brightness, incredibly fresh. As an aged wine it should be stunning. To 2015."

Bronze Medal - Scoop Magazine, Autumn 2005
"Cab Merlot from Margaret River is the stuff of legends, (and this wine) will please those looking for real cabernet characters. This well crafted wine is not dominated by merlot; rather the merlot makes an important contribution from a respectful distance. Fresh fruit, good use of oak and the sort of palate that makes a Harvey steak look its very best."

2001 Cabernet Merlot:

Gold Medal - Most Successful Red Wine, 2003 Margaret River Public Wine Show

Silver Medal - 2002 Australian Small Winemakers Wine Show

89 Pts - Ray Jordan's WA Guide to Wine
