91 points "Color: deep; Acidity: crisp; Finish: persistent; Overall: well balanced; Needed an hour in the decanter to open up. Fragrant, with a good deal of pepper and earth besides the dark fruit. Fairly high acidity balanced out the boldness of the wine. Somewhat viscous, with good structure and a nice long finish."

94 points "The nose is youthful and fresh with a rush of stylish fruits - raspberry, Satsuma plum - to the fore. A cedary oak background is in balance with the cooler climate spices and earthy, meat complexities.?? The palate is defined, tight and focussed. Integrated, stylish oak fuses effortlessly with a compote of expressive, red-berried fruits. Fine, persistent tannins comfortably convey a long and lingering finish, signing off and providing closure for this medium-weight Bin 128 package. While this wine needs time, it possesses all the right ingredients to excel as an A-level Bin 128." Best 2009-2024
