Supple, fresh, evocative.
The Judge is an impressive blend of estate Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot housed in a muscular bottle.
The nose offers roasted bell peppers and peppery spices on the savoury end, then evocative notes of licorice, vanilla, cherry gelee, smoked plums and purple flowers add a fragrant lift. Supple but still fresh, it is a well-woven palate of mocha and baking spices, cracked pepper and bright fruit flavours. Great structure and balance, a wine suited for Hester Creek's premium red.
