A bright wine with a red rim and a darker plum coloured core. Spicy red cherry and dark cherry combination with a smoky character derived from 15 months in oak. There are also hints of caramel from barrel maturation and pepper from the Shiraz component in the wine. As a young wine, the entry to the palate is soft yet fresh. In the mouth the wine expands to give a range of flavours from cherry and dark berries to a spice-like quality. The tannins are firm, but soft enough so as to complement the fruit weight. The wine has a sweet middle palate, but finishes dry.
Professional Reviews

90/100
Wine Companion
Medium to full red-purple; solid, dark fruits and touches of dark chocolate and vanilla oak on the bouquet lead into a well-balanced, medium-bodied palate with sweet, chocolatey fruit and ripe tannins. Trophy and gold medal winner at the McLaren Vale Wine Show.
, James Halliday Issue: Jan 2003



89/100
Wine Spectator
Firm and chewy, with dark berry, cherry and mineral flavors, echoing enticingly on the refined finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Jul 31 2003



88/100
The Wine Advocate
The deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 JSM offers a dense, peppery, black cherry and currant-scented bouquet, medium to full body, and a chunky, monolithic but attractive personality.
