Natalie's Score: 91/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Pure, with an excellent core of raspberry and boysenberry fruit riding atop racy, graphite and iron notes. Unfined and unfiltered. My note: A rich, round, full-bodied red with attractive notes of coffee, blackberry, mocha and tobacco. The grapes for this wine were gently basket pressed and spent 22 months in French oak. It has a lovely, long finish.

Syrah food pairings: peppercorn steak, ratatouille, cassoulet, fruit chutney, ostrich.

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

Crushed red berries, coffee, light pepper note. This is all about the pure fruit. No brett, very nicely made. Medium-long finish. Drink now. (
Glenda rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine has a bold nose with fragrances of white pepper. On the palate there are spicy flavours with a savory smokiness. Not a very robust wine but rather an elegant wine.The finish is long and spicy.
I had this wine duck spring rolls and the combo worked well.
