90 points Wine Spectator
****(*) John Livingstone-Learmonth
"plum red robe. Mulled fruits, mulberry with raspberry, settle in a sweet-noted, chunky nose that has a confident, assured depth. This attacks firmly, with fresh tannin through it; Red cherry and raspberry lie at its centre. It goes quite long via its inner strength. The Carignan brings added frame and a firm shape to the late moments. It is a most willing partner for chuck steak beef hamburgers. It ends fully, almost crunchily, and the degree is most evident on the aftertaste. 15.5°. €8 export. 2021-22 Aug 2016
Previously Apr 2015 ***(*) (casks) dark robe, all the way up. Smoky, licorice-bearing aroma, with cool black fruit, blueberry at its centre. There is a little gas on the palate, which runs very well, holds lots of flowing fruit, is tasty and clear at the same time. This is a bright 2014 Cairanne with enough body to do well over 4-5 years. Its tannins aid the depth and life on the finish. Very good. From spring 2016. 2021-22"
