Step Road were kind enough to let me taste some of their wines on a recent junket to Langhorne Creek but I no doubt lost the notes on the journey back. Thankfully they were nice enough to send me some replacements. This has a gutsy nose of black fruits, plum chocolate, a bit of vanilla oak and a dab of regional mint. The palate is not as rewarding as the nose to be honest, there’s a core of dark fruit, some grainy tannins a bit of persistent spice but the acids still feel a bit clunky and it ends a touch awkward.
