Mature flavour with rich fruit and tannin. Drinking well but another big wine that needs more time. Rewards of Patience, 1st ed., 1985
Deep rich and chocolatey, dense and smooth. A big, softer style with ripe, oaky chocolate and vanilla notes pervading. Very good and has many years left. Huon Hooke, 1992
Colour is a medium brick red. Complex and vibrant, sweet, meaty/truffly fruit with perfumed apricot/marmalade and black fruit notes. Concentrated and textured with sweet, briary, apricot-like Now fruit and touches of star anise. Fine dry tannins and excellent length. A remarkable wine Winemaker comments by Max Schubert
