James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Rich and opulent; lots of oak and extract; dark fruits; carefully pitched to wine shows, succeeding in Melbourne, Rutherglen, Cowra and Perth, but not in the best shows.
Australian Wine Companion 2006 2005
Jeremy Oliver (1999 Vintage) says
A fine, silky and typically velvet-smooth and supple red blend from the 1999 vintage, whose pristine and slightly jammy aromas of cassis, raspberries and plums are backed by nuances of treacle and sweet chocolate/vanilla oak. Long and vibrant, its slightly meaty expression of intense berry flavours is supported by firm, fine-grained tannin, but remains rather too oaky for a higher rating.

James Halliday (1998 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; ripe, lush blackberry and blackcurrant fruit is married with well-balanced but evident oak on the bouquet; a powerful wine in the mouth, opening with fruit before ripe but persistent tannins move in on the back palate and finish. A distinguished wine with a great future.
Australian Wine Companion 2004 2003
Jeremy Oliver (1998 Vintage) says
Classic Australian blend with a restrained fragrance of small black and red berries, dark chocolates, creamy, smoky oak, violets and white pepper, cedar, cloves and cinnamon. Smooth and satiny, with concentrated small berry flavours matched by tightly integrated mocha/coconut oak and tight-knit tannins. Superbly balanced, long and elegant.
Australian Wine Annual 2005 2004
James Halliday (1994 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; notwithstanding the elaborate oak treatment, a very elegant wine, beautifully built and structured, with intense black cherry and blackberry fruit running through to soft tannins on the finish.
