“The grapes come from the Wilyabrup district, one of the foremost in Margaret River for cabernet. It is only medium-bodied, but has purity, intensity and precise varietal fruit with a mix of redcurrant and blackcurrant flavours enhanced by silky, yet persistent, tannins.”95 Points - James Halliday, James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2015 edition
“The 2012 vintage of this consistently good red is full-bodied, smooth and succulent, with prominent flavours of black currant and cherry. The telltale hint of mint, classic to Australia’s relatively cool western Margaret River region, is here, too, as is an intriguing whisper of mossy earth. Medium-rare steak would be perfect; $21.99 in B.C., $24.99 in Nova Scotia.”90 Points - Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail
