- Deep, dense, almost chewy Merlot with dark-fleshed plum, dark berry and liquorice flavours. Ripe, well-structured wine with an influence of classy oak. Very impressive. BobsWineReviews.com.
- Bright colour; the bouquet offers black cherry, cedar, plum bay leaf and ironstone; the palate is medium-bodied, dry and structured, with a long charry finish; merlot with serious intent. Ben Edwards.
