95 Points James Halliday
Dense red-purple; the bouquet is rich and full with attractive dark chocolate and blackberry fruit aromas supported by subtle oak. A powerful and concentrated wine on the palate with briary, dark chocolate and blackberry fruit, with that touch of atringency of Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are persistent but fine. Drink to 2010.
