Experts say

Praise for the 2009 vintage
96 Point Chairman’s Trophy Winner at Ultimate Wine Challenge 2014 – “Blood red color, almost opaque. Berry-like aroma is ripe, gently sweet, slightly baked, and terribly attractive. Huge flavors of bilberry, cassis, prune, date, hazelnut are cradled by soft tannins and a silky texture that’s A-1. Gorgeous, classic.”

94 Points at Wine Enthusiast – “This wine has black fruits, dark tannins, a light perfumed character and considerable potential. Powered by its structure and acidity it is developing slowly and surely.” Roger Voss

92 Points Mark Squires – “wonderfully expressive and powerfully aromatic.”
Double Gold at CWSA 2015.

Silver at the IWC 2014 – “This packs a fruity punch with dark black fruits on the nose and palate. Beautifully knitted together.”

Silver at Concours Mondial de Bruxelles 2014.

Bronze at Decanter WWA 2014 – “Heady aromas of caramel and fresh blackberries. Very approachable with its rounded texture and smooth elegant tannins. A long persistent finish which has a lot of charm.”

Bronze at Decanter AWA 2015 – “Strawberry scented with a waft of sweet spice. Juicy, textured mouthful of baked fruit, with meaty undertones, crisp acidity and a good, clean finish.”
