Jeremy Oliver, Australian Wine Annual 2012, 90 points

Surprisingly elegant, with a pristine core of vibrant, spicy fruit, it’s scented with a very spicy, dusty and slightly meaty bouquet of dark plums, blackberries, blueberries and restrained cedar/vanilla oak backed by a hint of spirit. Long smooth, its gentle presence of cassis, violets, blackberries and fresh oak is backed by a fine, chalky undercarriage, finishing with a hint of spirit warmth.
