2016 VINTAGE - 5 STARS
Delicious now but also well worth cellaring, the dark, sturdy 2016 vintage was hand-picked and matured for a year in French oak barriques. It has concentrated plum and black-pepper flavours, with a hint of liquorice. Fragrant and spicy, it has slightly earthy notes adding complexity and a long, structured finish. - Micheal Cooper
2015 VINTAGE - 3 ½ STARS
The full-coloured 2015 vintage is a medium to full-bodied red with fresh, plummy, spicy flavours, hints of tamarillos, olives and herbs, a gentle seasoning of toasty oak, fine-grained tannins and a very smooth finish. - Micheal Cooper
2014 VINTAGE - 4 ½ STARS
The very harmonious 2014 vintage was hand-picked and matured for a year in seasoned French oak barriques. Full-coloured, with a fragrant, clearly varietal bouquet, it is mouthfilling, ripe and smooth, with strong plum/spice flavours, a hint of dark chocolate, and a long, well-rounded finish. Best drinking 2018+. - Micheal Cooper
2013 VINTAGE - 4 STARS
Fragrant and deeply coloured, the 2013 vintage has good weight and ripe plum and black-pepper flavours, rich and smooth. It's a youthful, strongly varietal style that lingers well. - Micheal Cooper
2012 VINTAGE - 4 STARS
Full-coloured and floral, the 2012 vintage (4*) has concentrated, peppery, slightly herbal flavours, finely balanced tannins and a lingering finish. - Micheal Cooper
