96pts – Huon Hooke - "The Real Review"
96pts – James Halliday
"Intense cedar, cigarbox bouquet, trace of chocolate; youthful & bright, the palate intense, finely focused, tightly framed. Firm, taut & elegant, with ripe, supple tannins aplenty & great persistence. Impressive wine. (52% Great Southern; 48% Margaret River)" – Huon Hooke
"Deep purple-crimson; made from old vine cabernet from Great Southern (predominantly)/Margaret River); spends 20 months in 60% new French oak & fermented wild. This is classically powerful cabernet sauvignon, its fruit & tannins grappling with each other; over time the tannins will lessen & at the point of surrender, a truly great wine will emerge." – James Halliday
