Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"This classic blend of the famous Bordeaux varieties shows rich, ripe plum and blackberry flavours with hints of spice and fine oak. It is an elegant and aromatic wine with layers of red plum, cassis and violet. The long finish and fine grained tannins make this an ideal accompaniment to richly flavoured foods."
4 1/2 Stars Yvonne Lorkin, June 2018 (2014 Vintage)
"Close your eyes and imagine this wine being a shiny, skintight, leopard print suit inside chunky, glittery platform boots. It’s David Lee Roth in a bottle basically. Suspended on wires above an arena, belting out ‘Jump!’ It’s a slick, masculine, Hollywood wine that’s impenetrably dark and doused with blackberry, plum, boysenberry and voluptuously spicy characters. Deeply savoury and oozing cocoa characters – it’s an absolutely beautiful example of what those iron-rich, Bridge Pa soils can achieve."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"From the Bridge Pa Triangle district, this stylish Bordeaux blend displays inviting aromas of dark plum, spiced cherry, game, black olive and toasted nuts on the nose. The palate is beautifully weighted and rounded, and offers delectable fruit flavours as well as seductive savoury nuances, wonderfully structured by fine, chalky tannins. At its best: now to 2021."
5 Stars & 18.5-/20 Raymond Chan, May 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"Very dark, near-impenetrable black-red colour with a little garnet on the edge. The nose is softly concentrated with deep and dense aromas of ripe black plums and dark-red berryfruit, unfolding liquorice, spice and cassis notes. Some funky, savoury game and cedary oak elements emerge to add interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and succulent flavours of ripe black plums, dark-red berry fruits and complexing layers of liquorice, spices and cedary oak, along with savoury, funky game and earth elements. The fruit sweetness is balanced by grainy tannin extraction and structure, with integrated, soft acidity. The flavours carry smoothly to a gently receding, but long, lingering finish. This is a rich Merlot-based wine with ripe black plum, liquorice and spice flavours along with complexing cedary oak, earth and funky game elements on a soft, grainy-textured palate. Match with roasted and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 6-8 years. A blend of 46% Merlot, 24% Malbec, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Cabernet Franc, fermented o 14.0% alc., the wine aged in seasoned oak, predominantly French for 12 months."
