James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Deep crimson-purple; these wines have a style all of their own, so densely packed with black fruits you think the finish will have to be extractive and tannins, yet is not. Would a finer, more lively texture be better? Possibly, but it would be a different style.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Impenetrable colour; a hedonistic array of dark fruits, fruitcake spice, licorice and mocha; the palate is thickly textured, with staggering levels of dark fruit, cleaned up by a little savoury edge of fresh bitumen and turned earth; massively proportion

Dense purple; a fragrant bouquet and seductive medium- to full-bodied palate do justice to the name; supple blackberry, dark chocolate and mocha flavours fun through to a harmonious finish; has a small jab of viognier.

Gorgeous nose thats all dark and porty with cocoa-like nuances. Extraordinary long, lingering palate has plenty of fruit richness and good tannin ripeness.

Deep hue; at once slightly lighter (medium- to full-bodied) and more savoury than The Beast, no doubt intentionally. Has lots of light and shade to its texture.

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
This princess has had a bit of lipstick applied in the form of viognier (3%), making the fresh blackberry fruit lift even brighter. Superb ripeness and smoked earthy complexity, genuine concentration of both fruit flavours and tannins, reaching deep through the finish.

WINESTATE (2006 Vintage) says
Very dense, very ripe plum aromas with complex mocha notes. Full-bodied palate thats hot and porty, with nice flavour depth and overall softness.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
A highly perfumed bouquet,followed by an ultra-succulent array of red and black fruits, the 4% viognier present sneaking through with its little bit of magical lift.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Powerful, medium- to full-bodied with a different fruit register to the varietal, thanks in part to the touch of viognier; lovely licorice, dark plum and blackberry fruit.
