Decanter average score: 17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Individual judges’ scores:  RJ 18 PM 17 AR 17.5
Powerfully built Cabernet Sauvignon with nice purity of cassis fruit, well-integrated oak and refreshingly savoury backlift of acidity. Very well balanced with a long, lingering finish. Needs some time for the elements to fuse together.
