Bleasdale Iron Duke Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

93 pts Tanzer/Vinous - Sweet, velvety and open-knit, with palate-staining dark fruit liqueur, rose pastille and mocha flavors given focus and spine by zesty acidity.

Tasting Notes

The Iron Duke celebrates Frank Potts pioneering community leadership. This wine is a blend from the best parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2012 harvest. Produced in limited quantities, this wine shows distinct varietal character and purity. Medium bodied with an infusion of French oak flavour and firm lingering tannins.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

97 pts James Halliday, Wine Companion 2016
Bright crimson-purple; an immaculately crafted Cabernet, ticking each and every box; while blackcurrant fruit is first and foremost on the fragrant bouquet and one-trick pony, with a swathe of hidden delights sufficient to lure even a hardened Pinot drinker to join the party.

93 pts Tanzer/Vinous
(aged for 11 months in large new and used French oak casks): Dark purple. Deeply pitched aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, incense and vanilla are lifted by a peppery spice nuance and a suggestion of smoky minerals. Sweet, velvety and open-knit, with palate-staining dark fruit liqueur, rose pastille and mocha flavors given focus and spine by zesty acidity. Closes silky, energetic and extremely long, with harmonious tannins and suave echoes of sweet dark fruits and spice cake. There’s surprising elegance here given the wine’s opulence.
