Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
A statuesque Hawke's Bay wine, the 1998 vintage is an inky brute with enormous concentration. Matured for 14 months in French (80 per cent) and American oak casks (80 per cent new), it shows great all-round power, with savoury, spicy, nutty, chocolatey complexities developing with bottle-age. The 2000 is more approachable in its infancy than the 1998, but still needs more time. The colour is dark and dense; the palate is supple and weighty, with deep blackcurrant/plum flavours wrapped in spicy oak and a long, rounded finish.
