WA 92 IWC 92 WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The wines made from Bordeaux varietals begin with the 2007 Merlot Brookman which spent 18 months in 85% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits a superb nose of toast, pencil lead, spice box, black currant, and blackberry. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with a supple texture, excellent grip, and complex, savory flavors. This lengthy effort will round out with an additional 3-4 years of cellaring.
According to International Wine Cellar - Full ruby. Deep, smoky aromas of blackcurrant, dried rose and cracked pepper, with a slow-building herbal quality. At once juicy and smooth, with intense red fruit compote flavors over a firm mineral underpinning. Finishes spicy and long, with supple tannins arriving late and adding gentle grip. Drinking well right now but this should be even better with a couple more years of bottle age. This was aged in 85% new French oak.
According to Wine Enthusiast - A rare example of really good Australian Merlot, this wine features a supple attack that gradually builds in tannic intensity into a softly dusty finish. Herbal overtones mingle with notes of cassis, mocha and leather.
According to Wine Spectator - Firm in texture, with grip to the sage-accented blackberry and tar flavors, lingering on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2017. 14.5% ABV.
