Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Strong, verging on rustic structure and flavours; black fruits, earth and tannins interwoven; heavily stained cork ominous.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2004 Vintage) says
It's a year or two from full maturity, but this has just entered its mellow-drinking peak (sounds like us). It tastes of leather, ironstone and blackberries and, while it's a satisfying drop, it lacks a bit of life, a bit of X-factor. Spicy finish and sound throughout.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Full-bodied; very ripe blackcurrant and blackberry fruit; persistent but ripe tannins.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Richly flavoured, firm and relatively fast-maturing, this is a slightly cooked and currant like cabernet Its bouquet is raisined and meaty, while the palate offers a rather hollow and raw edged express on of plum, currant and blackberry like fruit.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Supple texture and mouthfeel; black fruits/blackcurrant supported by sweet oak and savoury, ripe tannins.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
A firm and pliant cabernet with a minty, floral bouquet of briary cassis blackberries and dark plums supported by slightly raw and cedary oak, with an undergrowth-like background Full to medium weight, it's smooth and supple, delivering a vibrant and very intense expression of cassis and dark plum flavour integrated with chocolate and vanilla oak. It should develop well over the medium term as its oak settles down.
