Tasting Notes:

95 points "Travels with the Majella Musician in providing exceptional value for money, replete with blackcurrant, redcurrant and mulberry fruit on the bouquet and medium-bodied palate alike; while oak and tannins provide texture and structure, they do not endeavour to assert primacy over the central core of cabernet family fruit (53/37/10% merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc)." Best 2013-2015

91 points "Fine, elegant, dusty and cedary, this polished and complete young red shows true style and class. Backed by fresh cedar/vanilla oak, its minty fragrance of cassis, blackberries, dark plums and cherries reveals a hint of menthol. Long and dusty, with a chalky spine beneath its bright expression of dark berries, plums and cherries, it's sensitively oaked and fresh to finish. Great value!" Best 2018-2022
