Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Winemaker John Hancock is after a 'savoury, earthy Rhone style'. The 2002 vintage grown in the Gimblett Gravels and matured for 16 months in French and American oak barriques, is an elegant yet powerful Hawke's Bay red with impressive colour, spicy aromatics and ripe, clearly delineated varietal flavours of plum and black pepper, underpinned by firm tannins.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
The vibrantly fruity 2000 vintage was matured for 14 months in French (70 per cent) and American oak barriques. Full and purple-flushed in colour, it's a tautly structured wine with fresh, strong plum/pepper flavours, crisp acidity and firm tannins. Slightly austere in its youth, it needs aging; open mid-2003+.

Michael Cooper (1998 Vintage) says
Trie 1997 vintage is a dark, bold and concentrated Hawke's Bay wine with deep raspbcriy/plum/spice flavours and excellent weight. The 1998 is not quite as striking in its youth, but still a baby, with rich, purple-flushed colour, mouthfilling body and strong, ripe flavours of plums, pepper and nutty oak. Sturdy and warm, it's well worth cellaring to 2001 +.
