"...a brilliant wine. 98 points" Campbell Mattinson (Halliday Wine Companion 2017)
"It’s rich and ripe, but not over the top, so you can have your cake and eat it too" Gary Walsh
"98 Points. A wall of flavours abuts a wall of tannin. This is a three-course dinner in liquid form, it's density and architectural style both cut from the finest of cloths and sprinkled with perfume. Naming blackcurrant, gravel, cloves and dark chocolate doesn't do any kind of justice. We're much better off simply calling it as it is: a brilliant wine. Cork. 13.5% alc. To 2045. $85" - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Wine Companion 2017.
"95+ Points. It’s rich and ripe, but not over the top, so you can have your cake and eat it too. Blackberry, crème de cassis, baking spices, violet, regional perfume of seaweed, peppermint and bayleaf. Medium to full bodied, chocolate and forest berries, spice and pencilly oak, a mass of supple fine-grained tannin that grips if you swish it around, cool integrated acidity, and a very long finish with plump fruit, cake and sweet spices. It’s still very young and frisky, yet the drinking pleasure and complexity is already there. Love the feel of the tannin, especially the firm draw of the velvet curtains as the wine closes. Touch and go for 96 points. Tasted: Oct.16 Alcohol: 13.5% Price: $85 Closure: Cork Drink: 2018 - 2028+"- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
