94 Points James Halliday
Medium to full red-purple; a complex, concentrated bouquet with abundant dark, plummy fruit aromas, and surprisingly restrained oak. Plum, dark berry and dark chocolate flavours on the fore and mid-palate are then supported by persistent tannins and generous vanillin oak. Retasted October 1997 with near identical notes. Deliciously, voluptuously ripe with creamy vanilla oak and soft tannins. Drink to 2010.
