This wine shows a brooding dark red color in the glass. The nose boasts of aromatic blackberry and blue fruits with refined hints of bay leaves and mint. A great line of acidity drives through the wine supporting talc-y ripe tannins. Flavors of blackberry and mulberry shine from the medium bodied composition.

On the southern boundary of Coonawarra is the old Penola cricket ground, which first saw a ball bowled in anger and the flashing cover drives of the local champions in 1950.  The cricket ground closed in 1996 and soon after Jim Barry purchased the 30 acre property and planted a Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard. The original pavilion and pitch have been retained, thus preserving an important piece of Coonawarra sporting history.
