“Big fruited wine with dense cherry flavours and a hint of hot spices. Medium bodied this fine Marlborough wine carries its richness to a long aftertaste with a deft twist of tannin.”
Roger Ewer, Greymouth Star, 12 April 2006

“Young and fresh, sweet-ripe pinot fruit with some depth disguised by the youth of this wine. One to watch as it unfolds. Start drinking in another year.”
Winestate Magazine, May/June 2006

“Pure fruit impact is fresh and juicy, with dark fruit flavours that have an edge of cherry and mellow spice. Clean, bright, well balanced mid palate is follow by a light, soft, easy going finish. Mellow wine, all fruit and smiles.”
Keith Stewart, 2 May 2006

"A luscious, medium-bodied pinot noir with a round soft palate, well balanced acidity, supple tannins and flavours that linger. Cherry notes dominate the palate and are supported by hints of plum and redcurrant."(86 points)
Wine & Spirits Magazine, August 2006
