5 Stars - Raymond Chan - "The nose is full and voluminous with powerful and deeply concentrated aromas of ripe black berry and plum fruits. Medium-full bodied, densely packed ripe fruit flavours of black and dark red berryfruit and plums are complexed by nuances of earthy minerals, iron-earth, sweet oak and subtle spice elements. This is a concentrated, well-structured Merlot with ripe black fruit flavours"
93 points - Bob Campbell - "An elegant, fruity Merlot with plum, red berry, bramble, spice and a suggestion of floral / violet flavours. Quite a dense, powerful red wine from an excellent vintage. It's approachable now, but should age well."
