"This is a stunner – call me crazy, but it even carries echoes of Bordeaux. The alcohol is too high but the flavour is excellent, thick and wide and complex. Lead pencils on blackcurrant on chocolate with a side-swipe of dust, all in excellent, pristine, mouthwatering form. This is an outstanding Rockford cabernet."
