Wine Review: On the nose, this wine was a bit pungent and closed. On the palate, this wine is silky and rich with cherry flavors. The finish is very nice and very good. It goes on for a while Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Wow, This one scares me! Amazingly dense black in colour, the bouquet is expressive and filled with plums, mocha, aniseed, coffee, Asian spices and melted chocolate with secondary notes of clove and tobacco. The mouthfeel is dense, lush and sweet with an oozy density and a layered fruit driven palate, this Lily’s is more like the 2002. The tannins are extremely even and remain balanced throughout. This is the real deal and shows why McLaren Vale can make a full on pedal to the metal wine like no where else in the world. Michael Twelftree
