WS 91 IWC 91 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Soft and expressive, layering plum, currant and clove hints into a beautifully textured package, all pointing toward the long, generous finish. Drink now through 2018."
According to International Wine Cellar - "Dark ruby. Spicy cherry and dark berry aromas are complemented by an exotic Indian spice quality. Chewy, round and nicely concentrated, with sweet, focused black and blue fruit compote flavors lifted by tangy acidity. Appealingly sweet on the youthfully tannic finish, which leaves allspice, blueberry and bitter chocolate notes behind. Shows the best traits of this difficult Barossa vintage and might surprise with its ability to age."
Tasting Notes - "Black to the core. Very perfumed with lovely red fruits including subtle raspberries, five spice, cedar and sandlewood. Juicy red fruits burst onto the palate and roll on and on, balanced with fine tannins and subtle oak. This wine has great length and an elegant framework." 14.5% ABV.
