    "Ink-black core into a deep purple rim. Mocha, black fruits and liquorice aromas. Full palate, velvet tannins and soft acid line give a sense of richness, fruit is in the blackberry spectrum, but it's the savoury meat and herb notes that bring the package into focus. Ticks the classic Barossa boxes without sliding into the extroverted spectrum. A lovely wine"  Stuart Knox

"The dense crimson hue tells you a rich and complex bouquet and palate will follow, and so it does. It unfolds a velvet-trimmed palate redolent of black fruits, plum and a savoury finish to provide length and balance. The tannins are unexpectedly fine." James Halliday

"A hearty, straightforward red with leather, blackberry and coffee-cream flavours mounting a sizeable case in its favour. Size matters here. Black fruit, softening oak, a churn of tannin and a warm finish. A simple recipe, done pretty well."
