96 points, 2019 Halliday Wine Companion
Appearance: deep purple/red, with purple hues.
Aroma: blackcurrant, red berries, mocha, dark chocolate, hints of violet, with underlying cedar notes. Complex and engaging.
Palate: red and blue fruits to start. The flavours build to a beautifully textural mid palate, supported by the spicy oak, and gently fade with finely honed tannins. The length of the palate is a magical combination of the fruit and silky fine tannins. This wine manages to display a beautifully lithe feel, while still retaining the classic Margaret River structure. 2014 was yet another classic for Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon, making wines of structure, length and texture.
Braised venison cheeks, classic meatballs or porcini and herb crusted lamb
Now and over the next 20 years.

"Every now and then a new producer will pop up with wines that are really good, and ultimately vie for inclusion in the list of ten of the best new wineries in the next Companion....this is one new winery that will quite certainly be in the top 10, for its ranks among the best I can remember." - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion.
