97 Points - Jane Faulkner, James Halliday's Wine Companion

  • 'It's McLaren Vale but not as you know it. There's perfume and power and such vibrancy to the fruit, a certain detail not seen before with this series. The restraint dial is on. Excellent crimson colour, wafts of red and black fruit, red licorice, with light Middle Eastern spices especially sumac. Full-bodied with velvety tannins and a long, persistent finish.'
