Reviews
95 points (5 Stars) – Wine Orbit  Seductive, complex and immensely attractive, the wine shows dark fruit, cigar box, dried flower and cedar characters with nuances of vanilla and mixed spice notes. The palate is beautifully proportioned and styled, offering generous mouthfeel and delightful fruit flavours, brilliantly supported by savoury complexity. The wine shows fabulous maturity with seamlessly integrated chalky tannins.
95 points – Tony Keys  The fruit aspect of the nose is fading with dusty, earth and leather starting to take over. It’s an age thing and very welcome to this taster. The age shows across the palate its dryer perhaps more grounded, it doesn’t bounce around in the mouth but makes stately progress, 95 points and worth $40.
94 points (5 Stars) – Greg Swift, Wine Matrix  Deep rich red in colour and the nose is developing some interesting characteristics as it ages with its herbaceous and spicy dark fruit overtones. On the palate an intricate balance of wood and botanical forest dominates. This wine over delivers and will be at its best in 2-4 years.
94 points – Wine Genius  From the outstanding 2012 vintage, this deep and dense Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful medley of fresh dark fruits, supple tannins and enduring varietal depth. Beautifully balanced acidity and savoury nuances push across the finish.
93 points (Top 100 New Releases Aug/Sept 2017) – Gourmet Traveller Wine  The brick-red tints reveal some age development, while the bouquet displays earthy, leather and toasty nuances plus a trace of tar.  Very attractive complex flavour and balance.
93 points – Ray Jordan  This was an excellent vintage in Coonawarra. Classically cabernet from the savoury leathery dried herb aromas through to the steeling firm core of a beautifully weighted palate. Extends with ease to a very long finish. Classic cabernet from one of the great cabernet regions.
93 points – Huon Hooke  The colour is medium ruby to brick-red, showing some development. The bouquet is also showing early development with earthy, leather and toasty aromas; a trace of tar. Quite complex and mellow. Very good flavour and balance; fresh and clean, lively and bright, but also showing some attractive developed characters. No mint. Very smart wine indeed.
