Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2006 Vintage) says
About as old-school and authentic as they come, this is all about brooding intensity and soulful resolve, nicely ripened in '06 and looking very settled in the glass. The nose offers roasted hazelnuts and spices, dark tar-crusted plums and berries, sanguine, peppery and earthy. Densely packed tannins deliver a mouthfilling experience that has surprisingly smooth shape and fine-grained style; nothing aggressive, just sweeping density that gathers savoury plum skin flavour as it wraps long and deep through the finish.

I love Rolf Binder's answer to how old the mourvedre vines are that go into this wine. 'The bloke who lives across the road (from the vineyard) is ninety, and the vines have been there all his life - that's old enough for me.' 2005 RELEASE 'Fully committed' red wine. Dense, lush and unconditional, so much so that it seems thick with flavour: like bulls blood, no less. It tastes like a slippery smooth version of plum cake, though there are also clips of both dried herbs and attractive French oak; there's more new French oak in this release than is customary, partly because it's such a good vintage. Great structure here too. DRINK 2008-2014.

Strong colour; lives up to its name in every way, lush yet structured, power without the encumbrance of finesse; the tannins, while strong, have a leg rope in place.
