Mark Faber

Ferrous, irony nose- peppery, earthy, bloody with nutmeg, cinnamon. Searing acidity underlines the complex, ferrous and earthy spice palate. Tannins form a nice frame around the ripe red fruit palate. Complex, balanced, intense. Boom.

Huon Hooke

Deepish brick-red colour, with a touch of dark chocolate in the complex, robust bouquet which also holds notes of ironstony earth, ferrous touches and more, the palate very full-bodied and powerful, loaded with firm tannins and tight packed density. Long, long carry. A most impressive wine.
