James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright crimson; a fragrant black cherry and blackcurrant bouquet, then a medium-bodied palate that opens with the same juicy register of fruit flavours, but ends with positive, dusty tannins. It's all in balance and will knit well in a year or two.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Bright colour; fresh, fragrant and highly perfunled bouquet with violets offsetting the ample black and red fruits; the palate is juicy and generous, with the fruit swanlping any oak and tannin in the wine; long, fresh and fleshy

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Vivid crimson-purple; an unashamedly full-bodied wine, black fruits woven through a framework of tannins that are firm but balanced; comes together very well; 140 dozen made.

Medium- to full-bodied, blackcurrant and blackberry coalescing with smooth, ripe tannins; a coherent and seductive blend.
