Expert Reviews

Medium to full red-purple; restrained oak and relatively early picking has given the wine the character of classic cabernet from the 1970s or 80s, a return of considerable merit; it has all the necessary length, and very good balance, achieved without any green characters. Rating 94 - Drink by 2022 - James Halliday, Australian WIne Companion (AUG/2012)
