"Transparent ruby. Fully evolved with beautiful round satin texture (all tannins fully dissolved) with a very winning combination of liquorice and haunting sweet red fruit. Very gorgeous. This is clearly a great vintage to enjoy now. Drink 2005-2025." 18.5/20, Jancis Robinson

Gold Medal, International Wine Challenge 2013 - "Still amazingly vibrant with notes of black fruit and eucalyptus at the fore. Richer raisined fruit on the palate with a covering texture and peppery freshness."
