Wine Companion

"The hue is good, though the colour is slightly light, almost certainly a consequence of the correct decision to pick earlier rather than later; the result is a fresh , crunchy cassis-driven suite of flavours couched in a fine tannin web and quality oak; the bouquet, too, is fragrant."

The Wine Front 2015

"It's not much off the 2010 Wilyabrup Cabernet Sauvignon, it's just more 'merlot-y' and shows more mocha oakiness. A richer version, even in the slightly under-powered year. Smells of blue fruit, cassis, choc-mocha, dried bayleaf herbiness. Firm tannins trim the wine even as it feels juicy and expansive. Finishes with chewy pucker of tannin and some crushed granite-like minerality. It's a fine example."
