Tasting Notes


Bright crimson red. 


Ripe aromas of currants, damson plums and sweet spices. 


A medium bodied wine bursting with juicy blackberries, cassis, prunes and ripe Damson plums. There is layer of warm mocha spice from oak ageing and soft, firm tannins add a savoury finish and characteristic regional structure.  


This wine is ready to enjoy on release but will find further complexity over the next five years.



The 2020 vintage was a brilliant season in Margaret River. A warm and dry season with below-average crop yield allowed for perfect tannin development and an incredible intensity of flavour. The resulting 2020 wines show amazing brightness and clarity, intense and charming fruit character and a youthful exuberance, which ensure enjoyment as both young and older wines.


The Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon were handled separately during winemaking with a range of techniques used, such as open-top fermentation for aeration, pre-fermentation cold soaking for improved colour and tannin extraction as well as post-fermentation maceration on skins. The two varietals were blended after maturation. The philosophy behind Ebony is purity: showcasing fruit richness, flavour and smooth, approachable tannins.

Ray Jordan's Top 100 Reds 2023

This has been a consistent performer over many years in this tasting. Has delightful poise and fruit expression with soft supple tannins and a tiny lick of oak balancing the beautiful medium bodied red fruits. Always delivers.

The West Australian Wine Guide 2023

Either Julian Langworthy is blessed with messiah-like water into wine abilities or Deep Woods chooses to use high quality fruit and over-deliver with this range. I assume the latter. Punchy, ripe and spicy black fruit sets the tone. Blackcurrant pastille, pepper and plum jam linger. Plump juicy tannins finish the palate. Made for early drinking and can be enjoyed over the next 3 years.

Ray Jordan Wine Guide 2023

Remarkable that this exceptional value red wine still sells for around $15. Over the years it has regularly been judged best value wine and this is another supreme example of the easy drinking style that has made it so popular. Spicy lift to the plush fruits is so appealing.
