- 5 RED STAR RATED WINERY JAMES HALLIDAY
A melange of red and black fruit on the bouquet and palate, with each variety seemingly contributing, layers of mulberry leaf, spicy oak and chocolate also in the equation. Structured to cellar well but certainly enjoyable as it is.
93 Point Rated - James Halliday Wine Companion
"89% cabernet sauvignon, 6% malbec, 5% petit verdot. Grapes are sourced from the Wallcliffe (75%) and Wilyabrup. It offers attractive varietal flavours and has just enough sternness to give you confidence in its future. It tastes of blackcurrant, violet, eucalypt and milk chocolate, everything served in velvety form."
92 Point Rated - Decanter World Wine Awards
"Opulent black cherry, hedgerow fruit and spiced pencil lead nose leads to a palate of earthy dried herb and red cherry."

DJL Cabernet Sauvignon is a stylish blend of 86% Cabernet grapes with 10% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot grapes. It features a deep red colour with a garnet haze. The aromatic bouquet presents lively scents of blackcurrants and dark forest fruits, supported by spicy hints of nori, cedary oak and bay leaf. The full-bodied palate is filled with dense flavours of blackberries, cassis and dark chocolate. These generous fruit characters fuse with ripe tannins to provide a stable structure, culminating the wine in a lovely and persistent finale. Made for consumption upon release, this fantastic Cab Sauv can also be enjoyed after storing it in the cellar for few years.
