95 / 100

James Halliday

This is sumptuous, savoury cabernet at a ridiculous price. The tannins are pristine and tight of grain; the acidity fresh and juicy; the oak embellishing rather than smothering; the fruit, an effortless flow of currant, leaf, mint, bitter chocolate and a punctuation of bay leaf and a herbal potpourri, staining the long finish.

Mike Bennie

It’s a shapely, structured wine of fine tannin, lithe but flavoursome fruit character, exceptional length and a general ambience of sophistication. It’s perhaps not as taut as some releases have been of late, but there is a svelte feel and the wine offers depth and satisfying concentration. Tannins start tight and spread in a fan, there’s lively acidity playing underneath keeping things fresh. Each sip reveals a bit more, until critical mass, and then you get the gist that this wine has a little extra heft, spice of mocha oak and perky, tight-skinned, dark berry fruit flavours come to the fore. It’s wonderful drinking, perhaps earlier drinking too.
