This wine comes beautifully presented in limited edition, individually numbered bottles and lay flat cellar six packs.
Bob Campbell, Master of Wine writes " 95/100. Dense, seamless blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc with dark berry, cedar and spice flavours. Nicely structured with fine, ripe tannins that give obvious cellaring potential although the wine can be appreciated now."
Andrew Caillard MW writes " 97/100. Medium deep colour. Intense dark cherry, satsuma plum, cola, violet aromas with savoury oak notes. Richly concentrated and supple with smooth dark berry fruits, plentiful chocolaty textures and mocha, vanilla, toasty nuances. Finishes bitter sweet with long tannin plume. Elegant, generous and complex. Delicious benchmark wine. 2016-2028.
James Halliday writes "95/100. Cassis, mulberry and built-in tannins sing in harmony, fruit the soprano, the tannins the tenor, oak a muffled drum beat in support. Drink to 2028".
Wine Enthusiast writes "93/100. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is full bodied, rich and velvety in feel, with aromas and flavors of mint, cassis and chocolate. It’s plush enough to drink now, but should age well through at least 2030"
