"Black olive, black cherry aromas with gentle oak. The tannins are silky here giving this wine a velvet like texture matched to the red cherry fruits flavours and good length of fruit and tannins with an appealing berry fruit floral perfume to close... 96pts" (Rob Geddes MW).
"Matured for 2 years in a 70/30% mix of American and French oak. It's a concentrated wine with asphalt and blackberry flavours melted through with dark chocolate and toast. It has firm, smoky tannin, a peppercorn-like edge and an overt dryness to the finish. Both bold and controlled, you'd call it... 92pts" (Halliday).
