94 points "It’s freezing in my office today and if there’s one thing that doesn’t like it too cold it’s a cabernet-based wine – but I’ve done my best to warm this up and have looked at it over several hours. It didn’t budge much through the day and at all times I’ve liked it. It’s a cedary, tobaccoey cabernet with notes of earth and gravel and pencil. It’s ripe and curranty but not overly so, finely structured, elegant and yet powerful. I kept trying to pick a hole in it but I couldn’t. In the end I screwed the top back on and packed the bottle for dinner. A genuine compliment. The wine is a winner.
