"94 Points. Dark purple, this is a richly flavoured warm climate Cabernet from McLaren Vale. There is certainly a touch of oak here, but nicely balanced with dark berries, cloves, leather, a hint of compost, blackberries and brambles. The usual process here is for a small percentage of new French oak to be used in maturation, which normally continues for around 18 months. There is good grip here, abundant but very fine tannins with intensity maintained throughout. Seriously enjoyable Cab, one which should drink well for at least a decade. $25. Drink: 2022-2032"- Ken Gargett, winepilot.com.
"95 Points. This is splendidly ripe and fragrant with blackcurrant, sweet plum, cedar, subtle tobacco and warm spice aromas. The palate delivers terrific fruit intensity and weight, beautifully complemented by silky texture and fine polished tannins. Stylish and wonderfully composed. Drink: Now to 2032. Price: $25.00"- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
"96 Points. An excellent balance between the lifted florals, fresh varietal fruit and lovely spiciness with funky complexity and mouth watering acidity. $25.00"- Winestate Magazine, May / June 2022.
