|2006: 92 Points - Josh Raynolds, Steve Tanzer's International Wine Cellars: "Bright ruby. Exotically perfumed aroma of red berries, cherry, spicecake and sandalwood becomes richer with air, picking up plum compote and bitter chocolate qualities that carry onto the palate. A rich, fleshy style that betrays no rough edges, as the fruit sucks up the tannins. This has the depth to age but there's plenty of complexity already. Serve it with a peppery, grilled piece of lamb."
2006: 91 Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colour. The nose is a little closed revealing a waft of warm raspberry, red cherry, white pepper and forest floor. The palate shows a very well balanced, elegantly structured style with a medium+ level of fine tannins and medium+ acidity. Great concentration of earthy, mineral flavours and red berry fruit. Long finish. Drink now to 2020"
