94 Points

This wine, released last year, is the ultra-premium successor to Oldfield Series 2Bench Red. The blend is 53% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. The wine had a total of 24 months barrel age (French and Hungarian, 40% new). It begins with aromas of cassis and blueberry, leading to flavours of black currant, chocolate and spice. The long ripe tannins give the wine an elegant, polished texture.
