Notes From The Winemaker:

Color: Medium to deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: Lifted blueberries, red currants and black olive dominate the aroma with biscuit, cedar, licorice and hints of menthol adding to the complexity.
Palate: Bright and juicy berry fruits coat the palate and mingle with brambly spice, hints of black olive and licorice. Velvety, fine, grape and oak tannins add to the structure and flow onto the long, fruitful and spicy finish.

Story Behind the Wine:
In 1842 a 32 year old Blacksmith, Christian Auricht, arrived from Prussia with his wife and four children. He settled in the new hamlet of Langmeil and built a blacksmith shop, around which grew the trading area of the village and provides the aesthetics for the winery to this day. The artisan of iron has now made way for the new craftsman who has blended the oldest of Barossa traditions to forge this spectacular wine. Our Cabernet Sauvignon, the unsung hero of Barossa wine, has been matured for almost two years, achieving the structure, depth and balance expected from this premium Australian grape growing region.

Ratings & Reviews:

91 Points - Stephen Tanzer
"Vivid purple. Pungent cherry and blackcurrant aromas are complicated by mocha, tobacco and licorice nuances. On the plate, juicy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors are lifted and sharpened by tangy acidity. The lively, penetrating finish features sappy dark berry and floral pastille notes and smooth, slow-building tannins."

91 Points - James Suckling (2012 Vintage):
"Mixture of spices including black pepper, white pepper, cinnamon and iron on the nose. Full, concentrated body with dark-chocolate, sweet-strawberry, blackberry and animal character. Better in 2016." - (January 27th, 2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2012 Vintage):
"Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Blacksmith offers classic notes of black and red currants, pencil shavings and violets with a hint of bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with cassis and herbal notes supported by chewy tannins and lively acidity, finishing with good length." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Jun 2015)
