The Quarry, Craggy Range 2008
A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc matured in 59% new oak, the 2008 The Quarry has very good definition on the nose with blackberry, blueberry, cedar and a touch of tobacco: a bouquet that just builds and builds. The palate is full-bodied with firm tannins, great purity and possessing such finesse and precision with notes of blackberry, a touch of white pepper and cassis/briary on the aftertaste. Like the Sophia '08, there is an enthralling symmetry at work here, whilst the judicious alcohol of 13.8% leave the palate feeling fresh and willing another sip. Just 270 cases made. Drink 2013-2025.
