Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep purple, with brighter red on the rim.

Nose of sweet spice cake, molasses biscuit, red plums, blueberry, a hint of vanilla. The alcohol is prevalent on the nose.

Racy on the palate, all about the bright red fruits (slightly stewed - almost chutney-like) with pepper, dried herbs, capsicum.

Medium-plus tannins remain firm, though it finished a tad shorter than I expected, initially. Having said that, structure is very good.
