17.5 Points – Jancis Robinson "Bright ruby. Tarry nose. Sinewy texture à la North Rhône. Very polished. I would find it impossible to guess this was not a northern Rhône if it were served blind. Wonderfully fresh, succulent and satisfying."
Bob Campbell "Deep, intense wine with strong pepper/spice and oak supported by dark berry with hints of floral characters. Quite firm tannins give a drying and almost bitter chocolate finish. Powerful syrah with great cellaring potential."
95 Points – Bob Campbell "Dense, vibrant and youthful Syrah with raspberry, black pepper, violet, leather and cigar box flavours. Powerful and slightly edgy wine with a structure of fine tannins and gently tangy acidity. Will age well."
