Awards and Reviews:
A sturdy, ripe cabernet in a fuller mould for the region. Sumptuous. Sage and bay leaf herbals are sweet currant-clad, melded impeccably with high quality French oak cedar tannins. Graphite too, with a stream of pebbly acidity tapering the wine to a long finish. This needs time to unravel.
James Halliday Wine Companion Website -93 points – Published 1st August 2018.
” Splendid example of a classy cabernet from this super vintage. There appears to be a distinct regional site character her that emerges on the nose and extended through to the palate. Such an expressive wine displaying seamless integration and flawless balance. Good for the cellar, but it is mighty good drinking in the short term. 94/100″
