FIVE STARS 96/100 Sam Kim | Wine Orbit "A stylish 90/10 blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon, this is wonderfully fruited and complex; the glorious bouquet shows dark fruit, smoke game, cedar and cigar characters with nuances of black olives and violets. The palate is concentrated and impressively weighted, while remaining elegant and refined, and delivers waves of fine texture and engaging savoury flavours. The wine is beautifully composed and integrated, and offers terrific drinking. At its best: now to 2020."
FIVE STARS | Raymond Chan " Medium-full bodied, the palate has mouthfilling flavours of dark plums interwoven with savoury red berry fruits, liquorice, dried herbs, earth and cedar. The fruit has richness and sweetness, balanced by considerable fine-grained, flowery tannin structure. Soft, integrated acidity lends roundness to the mouthfeel. This has density, weight and presence, and the wine carries to a full, well-packed, lingering finish of plums. Liquorice, earth and cedar. This is a fulsome, complex layered Merlot blend with savoury plum, herb, earth and cedary secondary development flavours on a fine-grained palate with plenty of structure and presence. Match with slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 7-9+ years".
