94 Points – ”The bouquet is strikingly floral, the palate dipped in dark chocolate (more please) and the tannins support rather than intrude”. James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2021
91 Points – “A wine for those who like to be bludgeoned rather than caressed, attesting to the veracity of the back label schtick: a true heavy wine drinkers friend. The sheer extract stains the palate and fills the senses. A satisfying, powerful red.” James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (v16′)
