"Deep red/purple: an outstanding color in depth and hue. The bouquet is clean, fresh and alive, with bright black fruit and violet aromas, touches of cedar and toasty oak, the palate very deep and concentrated, with lush fruit and abundant tannins, which counter-balance the fruit and sweetness. A powerful yet elegant Cabernet with a very long and distinguished future ahead of it. An outstanding, profound wine."

"The unadorned purity of this Cabernet follows precisely in the footsteps of its predecessors.The '13 regional vintage was highly rated at the time, a rating justified today. Destemmed, crushed, matured for 12 months in French oak (40% new)."

"Aromas of black licorice, black berry and rust. Hot stone. Full body, layered and juicy with loads of fresh fruit and chewy tannins. Sexy, muscular cabernet with tone and focus. Screw cap. Hard not to drink now."

"The improved performance of the Leeuwin reds continues here, with ripe, sweet blackcurrant fruit that is wonderfully concentrated, deep and long, with impressive weight. This has elegance, great finesse and finishes gently firm."
"96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Malbec. 23 months in oak.
Bright crimson with ruby rim. There’s a lovely touch of spice on the nose to add to the leafy, pure cassis fragrance. And a light rocky note suggesting dryness. Dark and more savoury on the palate, super-fine tannins and very natural-tasting freshness. Long and elegant and still a long way to go. Long mouth-watering finish. 17/20 points. (JH)"
