Deep red with violet hues. Rich aromas of spicy plums, blackberries, anise and sage oil with hints of tar, pepper and cedar. The intensely fruited palate is concentrated, rich and lush with excellent balance, velvety tannins and a long finish.

"This lithe, peppery red is appealing for its freshness, offering juicy plum and blackberry fruit. Finishes with a touch of dark chocolate, showing length and refinement."
"Good, strong colour; the cooler climate of the Eden Valley was a godsend in ?08, the old vines also doing their share in producing a Mount Edelstone to stand tall with its layers of fruit, nuances of spice and licorice, and excellent ripe tannins."
