James Halliday rated 95 pts
Bottle no. 331 of a total of 600 made. The grapes come from the 40-year-old vines on the Nashwauk Vineyard, the wine matured for 24 months in new Burgundy-coopered oak. It is difficult to imagine how more of anything could be put into a red wine, notably more alcohol - which really does make its presence felt. Not my style, but you have to admire its panache.

Colour: Dark almost black
Nose: Compact and alluring aromas of star anise, chocolate and red fruits are tightly woven and impossible to pick apart
Mouth: A wine with immense structure and vinosity, its iron clad exterior is indicative of its potential to age. Bitter chocolate and dark fruits.
Great depth and structure.
