About

97

"With stunning sophistication and complexity, this meticulously composed red shows beautifully lifted aromas of dark purple fruit intensity together with seductive notes of cedar, cigar. cocoa and violet on the nose. The palate exhibits outstanding weight and depth, while remaining graceful and poised, leading to an extremely long finish, backed by fine, chalky tannins."

96 Huon Hooke - www.huonhooke.com

"Deep, bright red colour with a lot of purple in its hue. The bouquet very fresh and aromatic, delightfully bright and cabernet-cassisy. Full-bodied, supple and the tannins are fully ripe yet structurally excellent. Cedary, too. This is an elegant, tightly packed, refreshing wine with good acidity and fine-grained but persistent tannins. High potential. A stand-out wine."

95+ Gary Walsh - The Wine Front

"Wonderful perfume, savoury tobacco-laced and floral at once, cocoa, blue, red and black fruit – all the colours. Its light but dense, all lead pencil and tobacco, tannin is grainy and tightly packed, and while not quite the quality of top vintages, does the job very neatly indeed. Crushed rock, dried herb, blueberry pie linger on a long and firm finish. So fine. So classy."
