Tasting Notes: Wine Enthusiast 92 Points: “This estate has pulled out all the stops and produced a delicious wine of substance, finesse and great charm. It floods the palate with flavors of blackcurrants and cassis that carry ripely sweet fruit impressions deep into the taste buds, but it's dry. The oak is elaborate and in keeping with the fruit. For all the size, it's a feminine wine, and best enjoyed in its youth. *Cellar Selection*” (WE) Jun 2003
