88 points "Rather leafy and herbaceous, this shorter-term Bin 128 has a dusty, shaded, capsicum-like aroma lifted by leathery, plummy and meaty shiraz fruit. It’s smooth, supple and elegant, with sweet raspberry and blackberry flavours framed by leafy, sappy tannins and a reserved measure of polished cedar/vanilla oak. Honest enough, but too green for a higher rating. (Coonawarra, $22 retail, approx., 16.6/88, drink 2007-2010" Best -2010

88 points "The nose is quite intense, with lifted berry, dark pepper and spice aromas. There are appealing black olive and coal tar notes and French oak overtones of cedar and clove. The palate is solid, tight and defined and is true to style. Flavours of blackcurrant fruits, subtle oak and fine tannins combine to create an impressive flavour and mouthfeel impression. Refreshing, mouthwatering acidity and a pronounced firm finish comp" Best 2007-2014
