The drought conditions of the challenging 2007 season put considerable stress on vines and left a telltale dryness to the finish of many Australian reds. This wine is not immune, but it makes it over the line by virtue of its attractive blackcurrant, capsicum, leaf and tobacco bouquet and its lingering  fruit persistence. Firm tannins and dark chocolate oak will make this a long-lived 407.
