Jordan Cobblers Hill 2001

International Wine & Spirit Competition 2004 - Commended
Cobblers Hill is the ultimate expression of an outstanding wine from an exceptional vintage.

Complex dark chocolate, black cherry and cassis intertwine with opulent blackberry fruit, and hints of mint and toasty vanilla. This is a big mouthfilling wine, with densely layered ripe tannins, beautifully balanced and refined - the ultimate expression of the Jordan terroir.
