Wine Front - Wine Front, July 2011
The overarching impression it gives you is one of balance. It's impeccable. Blue fruit licorice a little pepper and earth with a gentle charry sauciness. Oak is downplayed this year adding just a kiss of vanilla. Medium... The overarching impression it gives you is one of balance. It's impeccable. Blue fruit licorice a little pepper and earth with a gentle charry sauciness. Oak is downplayed this year adding just a kiss of vanilla. Medium weight with fine grained tannin and balanced acidity it fills the mouth with a smooth and effortless charm. The pitch and length all just so - harmony. On a second day's tasting it developed a little more Hunter leather and coal (although I reckon they have had quite enough of that already). It would be foolish to drink this now - wait at least ten or even twenty years for it to show its best.

Excellent crimson-purple; has a fragrant plum and cherry bouquet then an intense and very long palate moving into a savoury black fruit spectrum; exemplary tannin and French oak management underpins the line and balance... Excellent crimson-purple; has a fragrant plum and cherry bouquet then an intense and very long palate moving into a savoury black fruit spectrum; exemplary tannin and French oak management underpins the line and balance of a wine destined to outlive many who taste it.

This is a wine that is focused and long with an extremely intense blackpepper and spice character. Dense and long. So much going on. Wild yet reserved. GIve it four years of bottle age before drinking. Will age for much... This is a wine that is focused and long with an extremely intense blackpepper and spice character. Dense and long.

Inky purple. Expressive aromas of raspberry and boysenberry smoked meat anise and cola. Densely packed but energetic and sappy with a silky texture to the flavors of candied red berries floral pastille and licorice. ... Inky purple. Expressive aromas of raspberry and boysenberry smoked meat anise and cola. Densely packed but energetic and sappy with a silky texture to the flavors of candied red berries floral pastille and licorice. Deep and youthfully taut but a lively mineral quality adds vivacity and precision to the long spicy finish. Seriously structured but surprisingly lithe wine that is poised for a long evolution in bottle.
