Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Deep red col. Fragrant Cab nose, dried herbs, currants. Complex, curranty with some iodine like complexity, long and firm. Slightly tart edge. At the fuller end of light bodied.

Stuart Halliday
Plush and ripe, juicy acid, with some nice crunch. Lovely tannin structure, silky and dusty, works nicely with grilled vegetables

Oliver Masters
Dark red, tight dark red fruit on palate, quite tight locked up, similar impression with BBQ Octopus food match

Natasha Hughes
Big, ripe dark fruit character. Lacks finesse. Needs food.

Corey Ryan
Deep Crimson in colour, perfumed dried herb, wintergreen bracken aromas. A deep chewy textural wine with excellent intensity and flavour. A robust and well-structured wine. The strong tannins and dark olive fruits are brought out in the wine with the octopus dish. The BBQ smoky flavours of the dish highlighting the richness and complexity of the ripe fruits in the wine.

Matthew Deller
Medium dark appearance. Cassis, liquorice, fresh herbs, clove oak. Nicely balanced palate, with good density, some creamy fruit sweetness, fresh acidity and firm, sappy tannins. Medium length, nice austerity on the finish. Food accentuates the oak.
