Red liquorice, gravy reduction flavours and black olive tapenade to the fore. And then, just so much more! Where to start? Compelling depth - weighty/voluminous/fleshy - structurally complete and even throughout. A radiant inner sheen, yet still assertive – a film encrusted with dusty, softened tannins that coat tongue. Great length.Wine Advocate 2016

“…Flirting with perfection… this wine is magical. Inky purple/black, with a gorgeous nose of pen ink, cedar wood, vanillin, crème de cassis, and blacker fruits, there’s some forest floor, full-bodied richness, and super-high extract and tannins. It is a massive wine, highly extracted, and built for long, long-term cellaring…”Robert Parker, Wine Advocate | 99 pts
“Extremely complex aromas of currant, coffee, spearmint, Thai basil and sandalwood. Full body, firm and chewy tannins yet linear and exciting. Just a baby. Fantastic structure here. Better in 2020.”James Suckling | 96 Pts
“Aromas of blueberry and blackberry character. Hints of dark fruit, violets and stones. Full-bodied, powerful and dense with beautiful fruit concentration and silky tannins. Shows reserve and finesse with structure. Better in 2021.”James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, May 2017
Wild blackberry and a dark-fruited compote benevolently offer a generosity of fruit sweetness. An almost silky tarriness coupled with mouthwatering acidity create a texturally appealing and integrated mouthfeel. Voluptuous/Voluminous/Velvety.Wine Advocate 2016
