94 points "Medium to full red-purple; a wonderfully complex and satisfying bouquet with fruit intermingling with sweet, cedary oak. The soft, rich and ripe palate is multi-textured and multilayered in terms of flavour. The oak is plentiful, but so is the fruit. Top end of the town" Best -2008

94 points "Unevolved nose with hints of wet earth and spicy berries. The palate is exactly the same: tighter than an economy-class seat, though with undoubted blackurrant-liqueur flavour depth and not a little (high) quality oak influence. Good flavour persistence. Big, dark, brooding fruit and big, cedary, toasty oak to match. Not what you’d call elegant, but impressive in itself. Rated : 94 Points Closure : Cork Drink : 2005 - 2013 " Best 2005-2013
