James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
A 42/21/18/12/7% blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot that has good colour; against the odds, perhaps, the wine adds cohesion, balance and length to its precocious display of black and red berry fruit, positive tannins and good oak.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Deeply coloured, this classic blend of the five Bordeaux varieties is enticingly rich and spicy on opening, with the strictness of the cabernet pulling the parts together with ease; very long, very generous and surprisingly accessible at this point in time.

Has that hallmark softness of all the Haan reds, finishing fermentation in oak part of the reason; a supple, smooth and round blend of the\ five Bordeaux varieties.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
It is no surprise the Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Cabernet Franc/Petit Verdot/Malbec should be so seamlessly welded, nor that there is synergy in the blend to give this wine the greatest fruit expression.

Colour showing some development; cedar, earth and mocha surround the core of sweet and black fruits; pleasurable mouthfeel and balance; silky tannins.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
A 5-variety Bordeaux blend matured in a mix of new and 1-year-old French oak. All these components are perfectly synthesised and balanced, supported by fully ripe, velvety tannins giving the palate great length.

Laden with red and blackcurrant, mulberry, soft tannins and spicy French oak, supple and elegant.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Strong, deep red-purple; the bouquet is redolent of ripe red and black fruits supported by positive oak; the palate has sweet blackcurrant, spice, anise and chocolate flavours within a mesh of fine, ripe tannins and good oak. Stylish wine; a blend of the five Bordeaux varieties which spends 20 months in French oak.
