Vintage 2016
Wine Type Red
Varietal Cabernet Sauvignon
Region Australia

Wonderfully paired with a midnight's escape. Ingeniously smooth, infamously subtle. Add it to your next night out, and you'll have the perfect partner in crime.

19 crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia,rather than death. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick.

Tasting Notes

Bright red to crimson hues, this wine confidently takes charge with intense lited vanilla aromatics balanced with red currants, violets, and mulberry fruits. Firm and full on the palate with a subtle sweetness giving a rich mouth feel. The vanilla aromatics carry through on the palate and compliment subtle flavors of red currants, dark cherries, and chocolate. The palate is filled with dark berry fruit and the sot tannins provide a lingering finish.

Vintage Conditions

A warm, dry spring resulted in slightly reduced yields, however the vines adapted well. Rains in January caused little damage and provided much-need-ed water following a dry start to the season. The following cool, dry February weather, and warm conditions in early March, created ideal conditions for steady, even ripening. Overall, 2016 was considered an exceptional vintage producing wines full of flavor, balanced with natural acidity and ripe tannins.
