Expert Reviews

95 Points. Campbell Mattinson - Wine Front. 1 January 2005

This is a real cabernet. It’s not opulent, it’s not over-ripe, it’s not shiraz, and nor was it meant to be. It’s fine and gravelly and strong in its aroma, there is nothing fragile here, and then the palate impales the initial impression and does not let it go: currants, yes, but moreso ash and cedar and gravel and bitterness, with dry dark hulking chocolate appearing but only as stumps to the house of its stylish, long flavoured, anti-sweet, rakingly tannic body. Pure, strong cabernet.

94 Points. James Halliday - Wine Companion. 20 July 2001

Rich, gently savoury blackcurrant, earth and dark chocolate; medium to full-bodied; excellent tannin structure, good oak. No brett; lovely wine. High quality cork.
