Expert Reviews

Ray Jordan (2002 Vintage) says
This is now a mature cabernet from the 2002 vintage. Aroma showing some complexity with a smoky black currant leafy tobacco character. On the palate the fine tannins and fine grained oak carry a seamless velvety smooth texture to a long finish. Still with plenty of time in its side with that high alcohol a help.

Ray Jordan (2001 Vintage) says
Very stylish and elegant Cabernet from what was a very good vintage down that way. Opens with leafy tobacco-like Cabernet on the nose with a muted background of blackcurrant. The palate is silky and neatly integrated with fine tannins and dusty oak overlaying the poised fruit. To be released in 2009.

Medium red-purple; bottle-developed secondary aromas provide a savoury mix with the underlying dark berry fruit; attractive blackcurrant fruit on the palate is joined by a nice touch of chocolate and ripe tannins to close.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium red; a clean bouquet with cedar, leaf, tobacco and earth aromas is followed by a quite intense palate with leafy/cedary/briary overtones to the dark berry fruit, and a slightly piquant finish.

James Halliday (1995 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet offers relatively austere but crystal clear Cabernet varietal fruit. The palate comes as a pleasant surprise, for it is not the least bit austere, helped in part by the clever use of sweet oak, but also by the lovely berry and bitter chocolate flavours of the fruit. The tannins, too, are soft.

James Halliday (1994 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet is clean, with quite powerful blackberry and earth varietal fruit; subtle oak. The powerful and slightly austere palate has blackberry, earth and chocolate flavours on the mid-palate before moving through to a cedary/briary finish supported by quite persistent tannins.
