90 points "Deep ruby-red. Aromas of currant, dark chocolate, creosote, lead pencil and violet. Fat and sweet in the mouth, with ripe flavors of raspberry, currant, mint and chocolate. The tannins here are finer than those of Everything But... and there's also stronger buffering fruit."

91 points "Dec 2005: Ripe, medium-bodied and stylish. Reveals soft, silky tannins, earthy blackberry and currant, smoke and mineral aromas, and a surprisingly elegant format." Best 2005-2015
