Low lying blackcurrant and chocolate melds with pungent earthy truffle characters to produce a distinctively Pomerol styled Merlot. Impregnated liquorice and chocolate cake flavors offers the berry fleshy intensity. Its balance of freshness with savoury like flavors keeps the viewer engaged.


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.
