2013. 95 Points.This smells good. Oak is in the background and adds a little nutmeg and spice over the core of black and purple fruit. There’s something of a violet perfume too, and a suggestion of black tea and clean earthiness. Full bodied, thick with ferrous tannin, sweet tobacco and deep black fruits, well settled acidity and a long ruggedly tannic finish. Such pleasure here, even as a young wine. They’ve built this to last, and they’ve built it well. Superb Cabernet of resonance and impact. - Winefront

2013." Gee, I like that, in what you might call the ‘modern era of Coriole’, they are unafraid of having a serious amount of nutritious tannin in their wines. This smells good.

2012. 94 Points. Excellence has becomes this wine's middle name. This is softer and more user-friendly than some versions but its intent is equally as serious. It tastes of dark, bitter chocolate and blackberry, saltbush and assorted dry herbs. Tannin is neatly tucked into the fruit but that's not to suggest there isn't a firm hand on the tiller; everything about this wine feels controlled and sure.
