Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

August 17, 2014: Deep ruby, savoury nose with cassis, dried cherry, dried herbs, mineral/graphite and light baking spice. Repeat on the palate along with tobacco and earth notes and a long finish. Elegant, with fine chalky tannins and balanced acidity. Pair with grilled tenderloins and sauted mushroom.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby in colour, this wine has intense, rich dark fruit, pungent spices, with developing herbal and forest floor notes. With refreshing acidity and robust tannins, it is one for aging.
Pair with spiced sausage in a complex tomato sauce.
Enjoy today, or cellar 5 - 8 years.
Date tasted: August 2014.
Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby colour with thick legs. This wine is still developing. Plenty of rich dark fruit, vanilla, toast, cedar, eucalyptus, garrigue. The palate lends anise, pepper, raisin. Tannins are hefty and the wine is dry. Acidity Medium+.
Length is long and warming finish.
Suggest cellaring 5+ years.
Pair with Prime Rib, roasted lamb, meat lovers pizza!
Decant 1-2 hrs
Tasted: August 2014

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of black plums and cherries, smoke, cloves, and a touch of cedar. The taste is black fruit, with a nice acidity and a bit of grippy tannins, but not too much.
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of deep red fruit and cassis. Oak is evident but not overwhelming. Also a little bit smoky. Cassis and dried currant on the palate. Tannins are young and grippy.
Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

Raspberries and tobacco on the nose. Palate displays ripe red and black berry fruit flavours with moderate oak. Firm tannins, full bodied, dry. Moderately long finish.
