"This is a Cabernet that's really full-on in terms of fruit, but so well structured and balanced that it's remarkably drinkable - that is, you can effortlessly manage more than one glass. Look for plenty of complexity in the fruit, which is concentrated and nicely layered. The acidity is well pitched, cleaning up some of the fruit's ripe-sweetness, although not so far as to make the texture juicy. The tannins are drying and slightly grippy but easily manageable. All the components are nicely integrated now, making this good drinking through to 2019. Score - 4.5 out of 5 stars.” --Rod Phillips
"Stylish and particularly elegant, this complex and deftly composed cabernet reveals a heady, floral bouquet of black and red berries, fresh cedar/vanilla oak and earthy undertones that becomes more perfumed as it breathes. It’s smooth and seamless, unfolding a reserved presence of dark berry flavour tightly knit with polished, fine-grained oak and pliant tannins, delivering a firm but gentle mouth-feel and a lingering impression of harmony and balance.
