Jeremy Oliver (2010 Vintage) says
A fuller, oakier expression of an elegant, almost savoury shiraz whose brightly lit bouquet of blood plums, blackberries, briar and cloves reveals meaty, smoky and slightly charry undertones with a little regional earthiness. Moderately rich and handsomely oaked, its vibrant, spicy presence of fresh blueberries, redcurrants, red berries and plums is underpinned by fine, crunchy tannins but just lacks a little intensity in mid palate.

Fresh and fragrant bouquet, and sweet fruit palate showing peppery/spicy elements.

Jeremy Oliver (2008 Vintage) says
Under and over-ripened thanks to a hot, rapid ripening season, with a modest depth of earthy, spicy dark berry and plum-like fruit slightly overwhelmed by chocolate/mocha oak. There's a whiff of violet and a dusty, rather herbaceous thread throughout the wine, which lacks genuine depth and true ripeness.

A good, solid fruit impact here. This wine has a lovely, deep plum and spice mix on the nose, very concentrated and quite nicely framed in fresh oak complexity. The palate s a ripe and flavoursome affair, strapping plum fruit, and ripe tannins that really drape deep through the finish.

Jeremy Oliver (2007 Vintage) says
Dark, ripe and gamy, this deep, layered and rather brooding, Christmas cake-like shiraz simply drips with sumptuous, spicy and slight brandied flavours of blackberries, plums and dark chocolate with briary undertones. Supported by a firm, fine and drying chassis, it's very ripe but not overcooked, finishing quite dark and savoury, with lingering intensity and brightness.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Full-bodied, with chewy, leathery fruit and plenty of oak; quite bright on the palate, but the alcohol dominates a little.

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Nicely developed tobacco nose - very complex. Good sweet/chocolaty varietal presence on palate.
