96 points "Hardys Thomas Hardy Cabernet Sauvignon 1996 View winery Still dense and strong in colour, the bouquet is primarily powered by sweet blackcurrant fruit, the palate packed with dense blackcurrant/blackberry fruit, the tannins still to fully soften but in balance.

94 points "A typically lightly herby cabernet from the cooler 1996 vintage, this adolescent wine still reveals small berry, plum and cassis fruit and cedary vanilla oak. Apart from a light meaty note, however, it has really yet to develop much bottle-aged complexity. All that will come for this restrained, tight and subtle wine, of fine fruit, powder-dry tannins and a long finish. " Best 2008-
