95pts, James Halliday - A 51/43/6% blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc. Destemmed, and then berry-sorted prior to fermentation in state-of-the-art equipment, matured in French oak prior to bottling in Oct '13. The Blend has a long and proud history of over-delivering, but I can't recollect any vintage bettering this one. The colour is particularly bright, the flavours totally delicious, running through blackberry, raspberry, blackcurrant and even a little cherry; the tannins and oak do no more than complete the picture.
WS 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Finely wrought, with good focus to the licorice-accented blackberry, mint and cedar flavors, dancing with a lilt through the intense finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020. 14.5% ABV.
