"Has savoury aromas with contrasting sweet fruit flavours, lots of creamy oak, a hint of liquorice and a long juicy finish. It proves that some good reds - other that pinot noir - can come out of Marlborough."
Sue Courtney, Rodney Times, 23 June 2005

"Here's a clean and spunky wine just starting to unfold. Satisfying now; best late 2005 into 2008."
Peter Saunders, Food & Beverage Magazine, July 2005
