89 points "The 2004 Thomas Hyland Cabernet is opulent and full, with sweet wild raspberry freshness and an underpinning chocolatey richness. A typically tight, but generous varietal fruit structure is immediately satisfying in the glass whilst promising very good medium term cellaring prospects. The finely grained tannins and carefully integrated oak lend complexity to a sustained finish. " Best 2006-2009
