Hide the tasting notes

Fragrant with vivid cranberry and cherry. Plump mouthfeel with well-integrated oak, finishing fresh.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

Vibrant and fruity with currant, blueberry and spice character. Full yet tight with tension and brightness. Very velvety tannins. Sexy already.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Very bright crimson. Certainly straightforward and very directly fruity on the nose. Noticeable acidity on the palate. Very fresh red cherry flavours and not that dense. Good finish. 13.4%

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2019-2025

Bursts with violet, plum and raspberry fruit, lined with silky tannins and backed by a tantalizing iron hint. Features lovely brisk energy and gorgeous purity. Tasted non-blind.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

Aromas of cherry jam. Plenty of sweet fruit in the middle to balance the grainy, toasty tannins with some freshness just giving it the edge that it needs.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

A solid core of fruit here with lots of cabernet character, as well as currants and blueberries. Full to medium body. Chewy tannins, yet polished and refined.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Dark, fairly evolved crimson. Sweet, light, a bit simple and green. This is the sort of casually made wine that gets classed growths a bad name - though of course it may not be a classed growth!? (It is.)

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2026

A gentle, elegant style, with pretty lilac, red currant and cherry notes, lined with a liberal savory hint that lingers through the sandalwood-edged finish.

Score: 87 - 90 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

Rich chunky black cherry jam, then robust and full-bodied and nicely textured.

Score: 90 - 92 Albany Vintners

Very pretty cabernet sauvignon character. Full body, fine tannins and a bright finish. Ultra-fine tannins. Tight and caressing. Refined. This is a little more cabernet in the blend that gives detail and direction.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Glowing mid crimson. Straightforward, quite fruity nose. Cool and fresh. Good balance even if not complex. A little toastiness. Good, neat finish. Quite a charge of tannin on the end. But pretty restrained. Even slightly austere.

Score: 16 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2020-2032

Fresh, with pretty cherry and plum fruit, lined with a light red licorice thread and backed by violet and iron notes on the finish. Not that dense but has good range and definition.

Score: 90 - 93 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

Lifted notes of blackberry, cranberry and eucalyptus. Vibrant with a tightness on the finish but enough weight to balance this out.

Score: 90 - 93 Albany Vintners

A dense and tight wine with cedar, berry, light chocolate and nut character. Full body, compacted center palate with muscular tannins.

Score: 92 - 93 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Mid crimson. Correct and well balanced. Spreads right across the palate. Really very impressive balance with lots of useful elements. Good drive and interest quotient. Complex and satisfying. Quite persistent. Really very impressive even if not a very long-term wine.

Score: 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2018-2030

Elegant, with lacy yet persistent tannins carrying pretty plum, anise and savory hints. Lacks some stuffing on the finish.

Score: 86 - 89 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator

Hide the tasting notes

Good blueberry and black currant character. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish.

Score: 90 - 91 James Suckling, Jamessuckling.com

Blueish crimson. A dark glow. A tentative but true aroma. Smells like sweet ink. Round and polished with some savoury sandpaper notes on the finish. Quite appetising. (16.5+ Points)

Score: 16 - 17 JancisRobinson.com, Jancisrobinson.com Maturity: 2022-2035

Features a saturated core of blackberry and cherry preserve flavors, wrapped with black licorice notes and backed by a solid, polished finish.

Score: 89 - 92 James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
