AWARDS & REVIEWS - CABERNET SAUVIGNON

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon:

94 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2011 Edition
"Good red-purple; a medium-bodied but stylish, intense and long cabernet that reflects the good '07 vintage; blackcurrant fruit is the core of the wine, with cedar, spice and earth spun around that core, couples with positive, ripe tannins. To 2022."
 

2005 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon:

94 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2009 Edition
"Abundant, supple and silky blackcurrant fruit, perfectly ripened, supported by ripe but firm tannins and quality, cedary French oak. To 2020."
 

2004 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon:

90 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2008 Edition
"Complex, with most of that complexity coming from the earthy/savoury/minty side of the cabernet sauvignon; black fruits and dark chocolate, but no cassis; firm, lingering tannins. To 2019."
 

2004 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon:

91 Pts - Ray Jordan's WA Guide to Wine 2008
"This wine was kept back to allow it to come together - and that it has. Classical Margaret Rive mint and blackcurrant belt out from the bouquet, with darker chocolate and cedary oak adding to the complex mix. Built for the long haul and will cellar for another 10 years comfortably."

90 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2008 Edition
"Complex, with most of that complexity coming from the earthy/savoury/minty side of the cabernet sauvignon; black fruits and dark chocolate, but no cassis; firm, lingering tannins. To 2019.

2003 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon:

91 Pts - Ray Jordan's WA Guide to Wine 2005/2006
"There is real power and intensity in this very muscular and powerful Cabernet. The palate is still very firm and tight with strong tannins and ample oak controlling the deep lingering fruit. Will evolve into an elegant wine of great style. Medium to longer-term cellaring without any problems."

90 Pts - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2007 Edition

2001 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon:

ллллл 2005 Winestate Magazine

94 Pts and 'Best of the Best' Wine - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, 2005 Edition
"Powerful, blackcurrant and dark chocolate fruit supported by ample ripe tannins. Very good mouth feel and balance; long finish. To 2016."

93 Pts - Campbell Mattinson, 2005 Sommelier Magazine
"Terrifically dense and powerful and brooding and should age majestically. Lots of black fruit, lots of dusty tannin, lots of stretched out length. To 2020."

90 Pts - Ray Jordan's WA Guide to Wine 2004/2005
"Deep dark colours. Beautifully seductive and fragrant aromas. The palate shows a real intensity with deep dark and powerful fruit harnessed with fine firm tannins, crisp acid and fine grained oak. Knits the whole thing together beautifully."

Top 12 WA Red - Scoop Magazine, Summer 2005
"John's (Jens) favourite. Very big, full, soft, sweet - but well structured. Opulent brambly fruit on the palate. Peter (Dillon) is keen as well, admiring the richness and intensity. Both cedary and leafy on the nose with attractive earthy/cassis fruit on the palate."
