Critics Ratings

‘Seems only just to be lifting the hem of the fruit – still very savoury and concentrated. Full body, concentrated and aromatic, with medicinal and iodine character. Bitter notes to finish.’ - Richard Hemming MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17/20 (Sep 2018)

'Seductive Cabernet with beautifully spicy aromas, ripe fruit flavors and a velvety texture. It's tannic and full-bodied, but so generous with the black cherry and vanilla notes that you hardly notice. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2002. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.' - Wine Spectator, 90/100 (May 1999)
