James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Once again, this is an outstanding example of balanced, fresh, complex and compelling durif; the bouquet is loaded with ample sweet black fruits, layers of spice and a little gamey complexity; the palate is full-bodied and fresh, with an expansive profile and a myriad of possibilities for interesting food and wine pairing; lovely stuff.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2007 Vintage) says
The packaging of All Saints' wine has been overhauled in recent years and, while beauty is of course in the eye of the beholder, we reckon they've got the range looking terrific. The estate is mailing the use of biodynamics in its vineyards - a great move on its behalf. The oak seems a touch toffeed (in flavour) and, while it will do the wine no harm in the long run, for now it seems at odds with the anvil of dry, tannic, inky fruit flavour that it supports. This is a dense, fiercely regional wine needing time to show its best.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
An essay into durif with poise; loaded with succulent dark fruits and elements of spice, the fruit envelopes the palate, but does not weigh it down.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
Showing settled, balanced richness with deep berry and plum fruit aromas, and some rich spicy liquorice complexity - this is no shrinking violet, quite fragrant. Super-rich palate, there's plenty of deep fruit-soaked tannins running supple and even, plum fruit and sweetly spiced oak fitted neatly around.
Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 2008
James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
A typical robust wine, though not entirely muscle-bound; a mix of black fruits and touches of spice, the tannins and extract controlled.
Australian Wine Companion 2008 2007
James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
A full-bodied, densely layered palate with black fruits, earth and bitter chocolate; a huge mouthful with great structure. A long future if the cork permits.
