Bob Campbell MW writes "96/100. Dense, powerful Syrah with red-fleshed plum, raspberry, new leather, liquorice, black pepper and spicy oak flavours. An heroic red, with a firm structure of ripe tannins that are smothered by fruit and alcohol sweetness to make the wine accessible but give it good cellaring potential." Drink 2015 - 2024
Raymond Chan writes "19/20. Very full, deep, impenetrable black-hued purple-red, youthful in appearance. This has a firm, tightly packed, dense nose of ripe blackberry and black plum fruit entwined with layers of cracked black pepper, lifted by violet and black floral elements. Some iron-earth nuances add complexing detail and interest, and the aromatics are expressed with clarity. Fullish-bodied, the palate features a deep, rich core of blackberry fruit melded with black pepper. Layers of spice and florality enrich and lift the fruit which is encased by very fine-grained tannins. The palate has density, depth and grip, as well as linearity, and the powdery tannin textures carry the wine to an elegantly proportioned, spicy finish. This is a rich, concentrated black-fruited Syrah with black pepper and floral lift, encased by flowery tannins and linear structure. Serve with game meat dishes and Middle Eastern inspired fare over the next 10+ years."
The winery writes "Rich and suave on the palate with a wealth of warm, gently spiced fruit flavours. The wine has the feel of liquid silk as the tannins melt on the palate. A fine acidity carries the flavours and gives balance, structure and length on the finish. Enjoy over the next 20 years."
