"The rich dark palate is filled with blackberry and black olive. Classic supple, powdery tannins and balanced acidity, frame the dense core of fruit creating a beautifully balanced wine. Refined French oak supports the pristine fruit ensuring the wine finishes with poise, balance and seamless length."
"Matured for 16 months in a mixture of 25% new and 75% older French oak barriques, hogsheads and vats. 13.5% alc."
"96 pts ... Another wine from Wynns and the '12 vintage that shows a significant change in winemaking direction, with the alcohol of 13.5%. While the Woodley Treasure Chest wines were basically shiraz, none wholly cabernet sauvignon, this wine has a structure those wines had in their early maturity. What is most interesting here is the early development on the palate of savoury flavours and firm tannins, yet allowing the fruit to maintain its line through to the all-important finish, where balance is not in question. Drink through 2032."
