"Ink black colour at the core, hints of deep purple and blood-red at the rim. Blackberry, liquorice and mint aromas. Dark fruits, black olive tapenade and meaty characters fill the mouth with balance and poise. The tannins are sandy but sit in the shadows as a guiding hand. There's a precision and attention to detail in this wine. 93 points"
The Real Review
"A fine estate expression. Blueberry, bramble, vanilla-pod oak, licorice allsorts and a skein of peppery freshness flowing to decent length, while curtailing excess heat and fruit sweetness. Solid drinking. 91 points"
Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion
