Judges' Comments

Kym Milne
Lifted cassis and herb aromas with some sweet oak. Powerful wine, iodine/inky with cassis Cab characters, silky feel with firm structure. Delicious with this dish

Stuart Halliday
Dried herbal notes on the nose, spicy dark fruit on the palate, however chewy green tannin, , with some green stalky notes on the finish, the wine manages to lift with the introduction of food

Oliver Masters
Dark red, red fruits and black olives on nose, hints of cooler sappy spice on palate, good tight focused youthful freshness. Similar with sirloin.

Natasha Hughes
Sweet cassis, violets and oak. Juicy acid, supple tannins. Good typicity and depth.

Corey Ryan
Crimson with brick red hues, brooding bramble cassis and some menthol aromas. A concentrated chewy style with excellent length of flavour, balanced oak and supportive tannin. The sirloin beef texture promotes the chewy tannin profile of the wine. The cedar and bracken flavours further highlighted by the horseradish cream sauce.

Matthew Deller
Dark. Classic, excellent example, cassis, black fruits, liquorice. dried mint, eucalypt, clove oak. Serous structure with dense concentration, fresh acidity and strong, heroic tannins. Excellent length. The taut structure of the wine works perfectly with food.
