Like the graceful bird of prey on its label, this elegant wine will sink its lingering, flavorful talons deep into your palate. Winemaker Virginia Willcock pours every fiber of her considerable talent into crafting memorable, life-enhancing wines reflective of the beautiful, geographically-isolated Margaret River region in Western Australia. Consisting of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Malbec, this virtually opaque young wine exhibits intensely perfumed aromatics— violets, black currants, wild sage, vanilla, savory spice, flooding the palate with a river of of ripe fruit, sweet oak and caressing tannins leading to an opulent finish. You can unleash and decant this tomorrow for a seriously hedonistic experience but I'd strongly recommend drinking this stylish, 'not yet ready for prime rib time' wine over the next five to ten years.
