"This isn't Coonawarra's most elegant wine, but it certainly doesn't lack for character or concentration. Menthol, vanilla, cedar and cassis deliver plenty of flavor in this chunky, full-bodied Cabernet. Charred, mocha-like notes emerge on the long, intense finish. Drink now–2025. -JC"

"Opaque ruby. Red- and blackcurrant on the deeply perfumed nose, with hints of pipe tobacco, dark chocolate and vanilla emerging as the wine opens in the glass. Rich and open-knit, offering nicely concentrated dark berry and bitter cherry flavors, juicy acidity and building mocha and vanilla qualities. Picks up a smoky nuance with air and finishes youthfully tannic, with lingering suggestions of dried cherry and plum."
"Seductive nose that is slightly developed but with a long way to go. Blueberry, cassis and black currants, hints of herb and mint, smoke, wet earth and coffee/ mocha tones. Front and mid palates showing powerful concentration but the wine remains light on its feet. The tannins are firm and mouth coating. Dark berry and mocha tones linger. Good cellaring." - Importer
