Tom Cannavan (01-2011) Fresh, vital, very youthful nose with spice-flecked deep black fruits. There is a meaty, earthy depth to this, with that animal, quite sauvage note beneath the plush fruit and spice. The palate is in a fairly tough grip of the structure at this stage, with plentry of tight, sinewy tannin and an orangy grip to the acidity. The finish shows that this has harmony and all the components to age very gracefully. One to revisit in a few years.

(02-2009) Advanced color. The nose offers an aging bouquet dominated by cedar and red fruit. Entry into soft mouth and the wine develops with great taste and with tannins. Structure falling a little in the final. It's a shame. Drink up.
