Natalie's Score: 96/100

Spectacular! One of the best vintages of this flagship wine I've tasted. Mastery in both the vineyard and winery shows here with rich and complex layers of dark fruit, dried herbs and cigar box. This is a cellar keeper ... if you can resist opening it.

The 2009 Oculus has a medium ruby red colour and ripe, intense fruit on the nose, with notes of plum and dark berries. The smooth, toasted character of cocoa beans and chocolate is given by the subtle use of French oak that accompanies this wine’s aroma while respecting the fruit and delivering complexity and warmth. The early palate is smooth but grows in volume and textural richness, while the wine finishes with a wonderful balance of structure, freshness and elegance
