Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

A combination of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Shiraz the 2002 Blend offers copious quantities of black currant, coffee, blackberry and melted licorice, and smoky aromas as well as flavours. Opulent, full-bodied and chewy this beauty was aged in both French and American wood of which 25% was new. Drink it over the next 5-6years.
