87 Points Robert Parker

This wine was wrapped tight, making evaluation very difficult. It both revealed saturated colors, good purity, surprisingly high acidity, and considerable tannin. I don't see it developing into a hedonistic example of Australian wine. In contrast, it is a structure-dominated, backward, restrained, and intellectually oriented wine. Will this wine open and provide the richness of fruit it suggests it possesses? Only time will tell, but it is unquestionably well-made, and its varietal characteristics are presented accurately. However, this wine is frightfully backward and unevolved.

86 Points James Halliday

Medium red-purple; the bouquet is clean, with cherry/berry fruit of medium to full intensity, although not especially complex. On the palate powerful cherry, berry and mint fruit flavours are followed by tannins which build on the mid- to back palate. Subtle oak throughout. Drink to 2006.
