Reviews & Scores

Four parcels of fruit, crushed and cold-soaked 3-5 days, fermented separately in 'Fat Boy' fermenters with daily pumpovers, 5-10 days post-ferment maceration, matured in French hogsheads (23% new) for 18 months. Against the odds (low yield, warm vintage), this is a near-perfect, elegant DOWIE DOOLE cabernet, the answer to the paradox the estate Tintookie Vineyard in Blewitt Springs. The balance of the fruit, oak and tannin is perfect, as is the contrast of cassis and black olive.
