Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lots of dark fruit, cherry and plum, notable oak on the nose, good balance. Really fabulous, especially for the price!
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Enjoy the rich, sweet, crimson purple, crunchy berry fruit of this juicy red. Aromas of blackcurrant and plum. Spicy oaky nose. Complex palate, very stylish with good length and finesse. Good balance.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Découvrez les baies riches, sucrées, cramoisies et croquantes de ce rouge juteux. Arômes de cassis noir et de prunes. Nez de chene épicé. Palais complexe, attrayant avec une belle longueur et une grande finesse. Bon équilibre.

Our Stamp Cabernet Merlot is a medium-bodied wine, exhibiting great flavours of blackcurrant and dark cherry, complemented by the sweetness and complexity of subtle oak.
