Expert Reviews

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Vibrant aromas of violets and blueberries. Big, luscious palate filled with powerful fruit flavours and a matching intensity of oak to carry it.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Medium-bodied; slightly more intensity than the varietal Shiraz; notes of dark chocolate and good vanilla oak; supple tannins.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
A complex array of licorice, spice, anise, blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavours; satiny texture.

James Halliday (2001 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; complex but smooth blackberry and dark chocolate fruit aromas intermingle with quality oak; the intense, luscious palate has concentrated dark fruit flavours and lingering, fine tannins.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet offers rich, dark plum and blackberry fruit married with attractive oak, the palate fulfilling the promise of the bouquet, with smooth, sweet dark plum fruit, hints of spice and soft tannins. The best for some time from a distinguished producer.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; a major disappointment after the '97 vintage, which so brilliantly matched fruit and oak. Here the oak floods both the bouquet and palate, even though you can see the cherry fruit hiding under the vanilla oak.
Australian Wine Companion 2001 2001
James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Full red-purple; wonderfully rich, sweet and juicy liquorice, black cherry and sweet oak flood the bouquet. The palate is redolent of liquorice and cherry fruit supported by high-toned clove spice American oak. A show-stopper style which has been wonderfully handled.
