   Rating:             95 Drink By:          2020 Price:               $12.99 Date Tasted:    09 Jun 2011 Alcohol:           14%   The warm, dry, 2007 vintage in Margaret River was very highly rated at the time, partly as the consequence of the dismal 2006 vintage for red wines.  There has been some second guessing about 2007, but not so much for its cabernets, and this strongly coloured wine shows why.  Despite 2 years in French oak, and 2 years bottle age, it still radiates the cassis and blackcurrant fruit of quality cabernet, the tannins ripe but firm, the oak positive but not dominant. This is one of the greatest bargains of the year.   Source James Halliday, Wine Companion Published 7th November 2011   BackVintage Wines Australia now rated a 5 star winery
