Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Petit Verdot Nagambie Victoria
The fruits of growing season 2003, cellared by David Traeger until release, have developed beautifully and speak of a sensational vintage year. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and a dash of Petit Verdot, crafted at the Sommerset Crossing Wineworks, matured twelve months under a combination of the finest French Nevers oak hogsheads, followed by an extended term under the Seymour cellars. A complex wine with an earthy palate and evolved, old spice characters, dark berry flavours and well perfumed, red and black currant notes.
Garnet red, darker robes. Bouquets of red berry and cassis, cedar notes, carob and clove oak. Ripe sweet berries flow on the velvet textured palate, the fleshyness of ripe cherry, currants and plum, French vanilla bean and cocoa oak, a mellow wine of seamlessness, satin textures and the most succulent tannins.
