90 PTS -"Had appealing flesh and suppleness. Juicy and vibrant, Peter Forrestal said. A slightly stalky, herbal character, but balanced by ripe, raspberry flavours. It's smooth, rich and concentrated, with good and intensity and balance. Cedary new oak and some earthiness form development are adding to the wine's complexity, and the result is a beautifully balanced, very drinkable wine that should hold in the bottle for several years" - Nick Bulleid MW, Australian GOURMET Traveller Wine, April 2008
