93 points "I always look forward to trying this label. The bouquet showed spicy cinnamon, blackberry, other spices and a touch of lifted alcohol. Smooth, dusty tannins, balanced acid and the deep, pure fruit combine to form a full-bodied, very-firm, solid wine with an agreeable complexity. The mouth is filled with spice, pepper, blackberry, and loads of liquorice flavour that finishes to plum. It needs time to come together and soften, but should be reasonably long-lived; rated as Highly Recommended with *** for value; drink from 2009. " Best 2009-2016

92 points "Almost black in colour, this is full-bodied wine, in fact huge, but retains some elegance. The abundant, dusty, drying tannins are almost creamy and considering there is less than one third new oak they are mainly from the fruit. The fruit is pure, deep and strong delivering rich, ripe liquorice, chocolate and raisin like characters, which finish with good length, a pleasant mouth feel and great persistence. A clean, well-made wine, with a big solid structure there is no denying there is some alcohol heat but it’s not over the top. Rated as Highly Recommended with **** for value, the rating may improve as the wine matures around 2009, this one will go into my cellar; it is reminiscent of the 91 and 96 vintages." Best 2009-2015
