95 PTS — Halliday Wine Companion - "There's no doubting the quality here, although spending 2 years in French and American barriques, 50% new, makes a strong statement. A riper style, with plush tannins – but some grip, too. While it will continue to age well, start enjoying it now, while it has a balance of fruit. Cellaring Potential: 2030. " 

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.
