Ratings Pedigree:

Critical Acclaim

"Rich and spicy, offering a heady mix of smoky tobacco and bittersweet chocolate character against dark plum, cherry and raspberry flavors. Silky smooth in texture, with plenty of heft underneath the soft surface and a freshness that suggests this has years to go.--Australian reds blind retrospective."
95 Points

"Offers a compelling, unusual mix of Christmas spice, Worcestershire sauce, tawny Port, meat and pepper on the nose. Bright acids and chewy tannins characterize the palate, which offers juicy, meaty flavors but not the full-throttle, over-the-top lushness that characterizes some other vintages. Finishes long, with dust and bacon notes."
94 Points
