TASTING NOTE: A defining feature of this wine is how complete it appears, even in youth. It bodes well for long-term enjoyment, too. A synergy of flavour and textures from blackcurrants, mint, toasty and cedary wood, and more besides. Finely chiselled tannins and cleansing acidity slink across the full-bodied palate. Drink by 2036. Special Value. Score - 95 (Jane Faulkner, winecompanion.com.au, Aug. 16, 2021) Price $ 29.95
