Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2012 Vintage) says
Have to say, from what I’ve tasted, 2012 is certainly a vintage where you can start to believe the hype.

Spice, nuts, flowers, blood plum, a little chocolate and liquorice – sweetly fruited, yet it pulls savoury and firm. And boy oh boy, as the hungry cartoon dog says, is this a delicious wine. Pleasantly gritty tannin, gentle slipperiness, balanced acidity and lip smacking pure fruit appeal and hazelnutty flavours bring it home. Let’s rate it appropriately highly, I think.

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
A bright, ripe and juicy wine that has carried the vintage off with aplomb. This has plenty of lively red fruit aromas and a cedary thread too, lots of pepper and a sanguine, meaty twist _ smells great. The palate s quite taut, tannins are smooth and active, really handy bounce. Flavours roll through in various shades of red through blue to purple fruits. Neat balance.
