Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Approaching its 11th birthday, this smells like old Coonawarra Cabernet. Nose suggests a hugely rich wine (bigger than what it is to be honest), with dried mint, black currants, cherries, blueberries and a hint of charred wood. These notes persist on the palate all backed by super high-toned acid. Still a little bit of greenage present. I'm 91 points on this wine. Might be one of the best Ontario red wines I've ever had. Confirms my impression from a recent tasting at Southbrook, they make some serious stuff. Slightly over-the-top acid prevents it from going even higher on the score. - Rachel (Ottawawinejournal.com)
