"This is a great vintage for this wine with a very fresh, attractive
delivery in a full-bodied style. Ripe red plums, blackberries and
cherries with a cedary, tobacco edge, purple olives and fruit-steeped
roasting herbs. It has a very intense, crisply cut palate that has
flavors of dark cherries, blackberries, chocolate and such attractive
spice complexity. Runs long on the focused finish. Regal. A great Caley.
A blend of 74% Coonawarra cabernet sauvignon and 26% Barossa shiraz. Try

"Deep red/purple colour, with a mossy undergrowth, 'forest floor'
kind of bouquet, embellished by well-seasoned toasty oak, lots of cedar
and cigarbox nuances, too. The wine is very full-bodied and concentrated,
with a powerful, driving palate, loaded with tannin and grip. Some
tapenade and olivaceous notes, the tannins lasting the full length of the
palate and helping"
