92 Points.…drinking well. Tastes of tar, leather, licorice and blackberry and while it’s warm though the finish the whole package is an overwhelmingly positive experience. Lovely smoothness and indeed richness. If you like a good Heathcote red you will enjoy this. Campbell Mattinson www.winefront.com.au 5 Jan-09
95 Points & Outstanding. Great colour; shows the depth of flavour without excessive alcohol possible in Heathcote; blackberry, licorice and dark chocolate, with ripe tannins and oak seamlessly integrated. James Halliday. James Halliday Wine Companion 2009 Jan-09
4 Stars / 91 Points. The nose shows attractive regiol ripeness, the oak sits in all sweet and nutty, there are jubey red berries, and fresh primary characters. The palate has terrific supple texture and weight, deep dark berry flavours, quite ripe, finishing with smooth tannin glide. Nick Stock Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 Jan-09
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep purple with distinct deep violet edges.
Richer in fruit flavours, this wine displays a beautiful assortment of chocolate and vanilla aromas supported by big sweet berry red berries and fresh ripe plums, reminiscent of grandma’s tasty home made jam.
Exceptional structure, a well-balanced wine with soft chalky tannins and immersed with luscious dark cherry ripe flavours. Full bodied with a lasting enticing palate.
