Rated 93 points by James Halliday, who writes: One should not underestimate Yarra cabernet, an idiom that is often reticent in its youth, despite a profound capacity for age. With climate change, we are more likely to see expressive youthful wines. Such as this. A quintessential Bordeaux blend in descending order of makeup from cabernet to petit verdot, franc and merlot, made sustainably and aged for 24 months in French and Russian wood. Berry and cherry scents. A seam of well appointed oak. Green bean. Good freshness. Bay-leaf. This is very forward of fruit, yet the tannins are an immaculately woven stage for mid to long-term ageing.
