"....deep garnet-purple in color, the 2008 Astralis is a little reduced and brooding on the nose showing aromas of dark berries, meat, licorice & dark chocolate. Big, full-bodied & rich in the mouth it has balanced acid along with medium-firm grainy tannins. It finishes long & balanced. Drink it now to 2028+." - Robert Parker
"Very savoury & stylish, with a spicy, faintly jammy bouquet of black & red berries, plums & chocolatey oak lifted by a heady, spicy muskiness. Tightly balanced, with layers of brightly lit black & red fruits knit with fresh new oak & underpinned by mouth-wateringly fine, crunchy tannin, it’s long & finely crafted, with a lingering core of intense fruit punctuated by a fresh acidity." - Jeremy Oliver
