Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Quite a toasty bouquet, with cassis and some warm earth character; the palate is firm, with rounded tannins and fleshy fruit on the finish.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Oak seems to playa prominent role in this wine, encircling the gently ripe blackcurrant fruit.

Jeremy Oliver (2005 Vintage) says
A finely balanced, quite firm and polished cabernet of harmony and some finesse. Backed by nuances of peppermint and menthol, its confiture-like blackberry and blackcurrant flavours are tightly knit with cedar/vanilla oak and backed by nuances of dried herbs. It's supple and fine-grained, with vibrant berry/plum fruit and oak-derived character underpinned by powdery tannin, finishing with length and elegance.

WINESTATE (2005 Vintage) says
Excellent example of variety. Cooked plum aromas mingle with spices and lead to a smooth, glossy fruit palate.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2005 Vintage) says
This has been around for a while, but we're told it's still the current release. If so, we're not surprised that they're having trouble selling it. It has structure and flavour, but it all seems to go missing from about halfway along your tongue. Olives, currants, cedarwood and toasty, chocolatey oak. Lots of drying tannin. Very good medium-bodied cabernet with strict varietal definition, in the ripe sense of the phrase - but the missing-in-action flavours through the finish are a concern.

Jeremy Oliver (2003 Vintage) says
Both meaty and herbal, this plummy and cedary cabernet has an earthy, leathery bouquet of small dark berries with greenish undertones Simple, forward and sappy to finish, It's an honest but uncomplicated wine whose plum and blackberry fruit reveal under-and over-ripe characters.

James Halliday (2002 Vintage) says
Light- to medium-bodied; fine, elegant savoury blackcurrant fruit and balanced tannins; just a little too light.

Jeremy Oliver (2002 Vintage) says
Elegant, rather leafy cabernet with tightness and harmony. Its fragrant dusty vine leaf aromas of violets, cassis, plums, capsicum and cedar/vanilla oak precede a fine-grained mid-weight palate whose attractive length of intense small berry flavours is bound by loose-knit tannins.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; the bouquet has spicy overtones to blackberry fruit and balanced oak; the firm palate ranges through blackberry, earth and chocolate flavours, all helped by attractive oak. The back label is of no help in determining the region or regions of the wine.

James Halliday (1997 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; the bouquet is quite complex, with savoury/foresty/briary aromas repeated on the palate, which is quite tannic into the bargain. Not a wine to cuddle up to
