The cool vintage has left its mark on this wine. There's plenty of room for disagreement, but I particularly like the elegance of this wine, and am mightily pleased that it wasn't submerged in oak. It is savoury and spicy, the finish a tinker-bell of cassis. Drink to: 2030; Price: $58.00; Date Tasted: February 2020; Alcohol: 13.8%; Rating: 95 Points; James Halliday Wine Companion
Complex with some attractive black currant intensity. Ripe but with freshness . Well balanced palate with a freshness but with complexity and poise. This dish looks to work well with the Cabernet family. Lovely pose and lightness on its feet. Warren Gibson; Blue-Gold Medal; Sydney International Wine Competition
Deep, bright purple/red colour, youthful and clear. The bouquet is all cassis, cedar and tobacco, the palate intense and full-bodied, penetrating flavour that runs the length of the palate and finishes strongly. A superb wine and an archetypal Coonawarra cabernet. Date Tasted: March 2021; Drink: 2022 to 2037; Price: $58.00; Alcohol: 14.3%; Rating: 95 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review
Opaque core to deep purple coating the rim. Vanilla, mint and dark chocolate aromatics. Rich and textured black fruits on palate entry, layers of mint, mocha and boudin noir sit underneath and unfurl along the length. Firm but powdery tannins give length and drive. A fuller, more traditional style of Australian cabernet but held in total balance and control. Will be a wine that can age for many years. Date Tasted: February 2021; Drink: 2021 to 2041; Price: $58.00; Alcohol: 14.3%; Rating: 95 Points; Stuart Knox; The Real Review
