4.5 Stars - "Screw cap. The Cabernet is supple, medium rich wine, with smooth texture, moderate oakiness, and a long finish, tasting of black olive, cedar, toast, and loganberry." - Ronn Wiegand MW, Restaurant Wine Issue No. 123 (USA)
90 PTS - "Smells earthy and of currants, cherries and a flicker of mint and herb. Then a juicy mouthful of berry and blackcurrant fruit, firm tannins and a good fruity finish. Very tasty. I like drinking it. It opened up and stretched out after a day too, so give it a good decant if drinking young." - Gary Walsh, www.winefront.com.au, Jan 2009
90 PTS - "Stongly regiol, with a pleasing ripeness to the black fruits and a touch of chocolate making the wine easy to enjoy right from the word go." - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2010
