Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec    
95 Points | 5 Stars | Bob Campbell
"Dense, ripe red with masses of blackberry, cassis, plum, liquorice, anise and spicy oak flavours. Perhaps it’s a function of vine age - this is one of the Gimblett Gravels’ oldest vineyards - but the wine appears to be more dense than others from the area in 2005 and there are no signs that it is over-extracted. A very appealing and sensuous red that, though fairly simple and accessible now, will deliver much more with bottle age"

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec
95 Points | 5 Stars | Bob Campbell
"A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and malbec from Gimblett Gravels. Smooth textured red with flavours suggesting a compote of dark berry fruits with a hint of violets and spicy oak. Quite a rich and warming wine that is showing a hint of savoury bottle development but shows plenty of potential."

 Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec
"A cabernet sauvignon, merlot and malbec blend unusually released six years after what was a moderately challenging vintage. A supple, elegant wine with plum jam, subtle herb, dark berry and subtle violet flavours. Accessible now and probably best enjoyed in the next 2-3 years"(Tasted June 2017).
