I realize that buying this violates the common prejudice against buying Australian wines with animals on the label. I snort derisively at such rules, after the fact.
Opaque, cherry-red at the edges.
Big initial smell of oak, quickly settling down to cherry/strawberry. Smoky.
Cranberry and red cherry tastes, blackberry, vanilla oak at the finish. Wood blends harmoniously with fruit.
Very good medium-bodied bottle for $19.99.
