James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion:

"Only Xanadu could made a cabernet as imposing as this as its entry point, with another three tiers above it. It is truly, ridiculously good, with blackcurrant fruit cosseted by integrated oak and fine-grained tannins on the long, perfectly balanced palate."

Tyson Stelzer - Tysonstelzer.com:

"With fragrant violet lift, crunchy redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit and notes of capsicum, there is impressive varietal integrity on display for this price. A finely textured, gravelly structure confirms its Margaret River origins, while a slightly more generous, riper and more intense personality reflects the warmer 2012 season. One of the best Margaret River cabernets under $20 and a real bargain."

Campbell Mattinson - The Wine Front:

"This release is in the groove too. Just enough flavour, just enough tannin, just enough length and overall charm. It tastes off chocolate and blackcurrant, lead pencil and eucalypt. It feels supple as it rolls along the tongue and pushes out with dark, berry-filled flavour as you swallow. You can ask for little more at the price."
