Judges' Comments

Warren Gibson
Complex with some dried herb complexity. A little prematurely aged, dried out and lacking freshness. Stale

Meg Brodtmann
Lovely varietal expression of cassis, herb garden, tobacco and some graphite. The palate is just as interesting and complex with cassis, cherry lollies, cedar and lead pencil. Needs time. Well matched but not improved.

Dr Ken Dobler
Medium brick red colour. Interesting aromas of cassis, vanilla and cedar on the nose. Exciting palate with a lovely persistence of those primary fruit flavours but with complexity of oak notes and very fine tannic length making this a delicious accompaniment to food.

Brent Marris
Lovely stalky cane aromas with hints of ripe berry notes taking it through to the palate. Lovely lifted fruit with hints of mint and oak on the finish. Steak works well as berry notes are highlighted.

Ying Tan
Deep red. Cedary, pencil shavings slightly warm red plum and crushed redberries nose. Med-full, slightly mouldy pencil shavings, blackcurrant cedar, good mid-palate weight, a touch simple but fairly elegantly structured. Slightly creamy finish, falls a little short. Sirloin tones down mouldy aspects, points up cedary notes

Sue Bastian
Dark purple. Intense, attractive cabernet dark fruits, blue flowers and fresh herbs. Great fruit weight. Gorgeous dark fruits, spice and nuts. Complex and long.
