97 PTS — Halliday Wine Companion - "A barrel selection from the best vintages from Home Block vineyard, 30 months in French oak, then 4 years cellaring at the winery. It is opulent yet well balanced, repeated tastings revealing a wine of great class with a long future. Cellaring potential: 2042. "  

The best fruit from only the best vintages makes the grade for this iconic wine. Bold, complex notes of dark chocolate and concentrated fruit lead to a wonderfully rich, structured palate with impeccable length. A wine that showcases the true essence of aged Coonawarra Cabernet and will reward any wine lover or true connoisseur.
