This estate which has continued to impress me in recent years hit a home run in 2000. Showing slightly better than I rated it previously this wine is deep bluish/purple with some lightening at the edge and its floral nose displays notes of melted licorice crushed rock blueberries and black raspberries. A wine of extraordinary balance equilibrium and purity with supple tannins this medium to full-bodied concentrated effort is already compelling and has hit its window of full maturity where it should stay for another 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator, March 2003
Intense aromas of crushed berries earth meat and spice. Full-bodied with super well-integrated tannins and a long green tobacco and berry finish. This is an estate on the rise. Superfine. Almost forgotten by some...

Stephen Tanzer's IWC, May 2003
Good deep ruby-red. Explosive aromas of blackcurrant mocha coffee molasses and spices. Sweet but firm with sound acidity contributing excellent vinosity and leavening the wine's richness. Expressive flavors of raw currant... Good deep ruby-red. Explosive aromas of blackcurrant mocha coffee molasses and spices. Sweet but firm with sound acidity contributing excellent vinosity and leavening the wine's richness. Expressive flavors of raw currant game and truffle. Thick but not overly fat finishing with firm tannic spine and excellent persistence.

Jancis Robinson's Purple Pages, October 2003
A cut above most of these wines in quality, but also in price too usually. Very deep colour with lift and toasty oak. Very seductive blend of ripeness and a tantalising sense of much left in reserve. 17.5/20

Despite nearly 20 years of age, this is a wine that will benefit from a few hours of decanting as the aromas appear shy at first sniff. After some air, however, this wine starts to really unfold.

After some air, however, this wine starts to really unfold. Velvety dark fruit stands center stage, with smoky charcoal and damp earth right behind the curtains. Savory notes of roasted pheasant, sweet barbecue sauce, and subtle bacon fat complete the experience and conjure thoughts of rich holiday meals in front of roaring fires. On the palate the wine largely reflects the nose, with brighter cranberry jam notes and a pleasing boost of acidity and freshness not often found in a wine nearing two decades old. Drink now and over the next 10+ years.
