Food match Roast lamb.

Undeveloped young cabernet from WA's Great Southern region, with everything in place for long bottle ageing. It has intense, complex aromas of violets, black fruit and mocha. The concentrated, closed up and tannic palate has superb underlying balance. (Screw cap; 14 per cent alcohol.)

Ageing? Yes, three to 20 years.
