Raymond Chan writes "FIVE STARS. Medium-full bodied, fine and firmly concentrated, the fruit sweetness and richness of ripe blackberry, blackcurrant, red currant and plum flavours form a vibrant core. Sweet dark plum, tobacco, dried herb, floral and cigar-box and toasty oak elements unfold, adding complex detail. The fruit sweetness is neatly balanced by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure forming a firm, linear drive that carries the wine to a long, lingering succulent black and red-fruited finish. This is a classical claret-styled Cabernet/Merlot blend with succulent fruit, a touch of funkiness and fine-grained structure. Match with roast beef and lamb over the next 6-9 years. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc from the ‘Irongate’ vineyard, hand-picked, individually fermented and aged 7 months in 35% new French oak, blended and aged a further 7 months in oak."
