88 points "Deeply coloured; very concentrated and deep, but the flavours are extremely earthy, verging on bitter, and the wine needs to soften. Screwcap. Rating 88 Drink 2009 Release Price $40 Date Tasted Mar 08 " Best 2006-2009

96 points "When Shiraz from the Great Southern region in WA is good, it’s very very good and this wine is all that and a bag of chips. It offers a riot of smells that shift and mesmerise as you sniff the glass – rubbed fresh lavender, eucalypt, ground spices, black pepper, blackberry, dark cherry and star anise all jumbled together in a spicy fragrant heap. On the palate medium to full bodied yet powerful with a big spread of firm ripe tannin and layers of flavour – chocolate, pepper, black fruit and spice that run out onto a big tannic finish. It’s tight and fairly closed right now but careful (and very enjoyable) tasting over a couple of days allowed the wine to open up and fill out. It’s a wine of impact, exotic dark spiciness and considerable seductive power. Rated : 96 Points Tasted : Jun08 Alcohol : 14.6% Price : $35 Closure : Screwcap Drink : 2010 - 2015+ " Best 2010-2015
