95 Points James Halliday
Medium red-purple; there are lovely sweet fruit aromas on the bouquet running through mint and red berry; the palate is fine and smooth, still exceptionally youthful, with very well-balanced and integrated oak. Soft tannins, delicious wine. Gold medal 1998 National Wine Show. Retasted March 1999 with similar description and marginally higher points. Drink to 2009.
