"Opens with a beautiful fragrance of perfumed black fruits, violets and a little cedar. It is so engaging. Then into the palate where you find a seamlessly integrated merging of oak, fruit and tannin. Grainy chalky tannins do their stuff while the oak sits harmoniously within. Dark chocolate and black olive add further complexity." Ray Jordan WA Wine Guide 2018, cellar 12 years.

"Good hue and depth; the bouquet is redolent of cassis and blackcurrant, the palate opening with richness, then stepping back as the tannins on the finish take hold. Needs time for those tannins to relax their grip." James Halliday Wine Companion 2014, drink till 2025. 

"Medium to deep-garnet colored, the 2010 Cabernet Merlot is a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Cabernet Franc that is beautifully perfumed by evolving blackberry and kirsch aromas amid an undercurrent of potpourri, sandalwood and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, the elegantly weighted palate offers a great intensity of mature berry and spice-box flavors with velvety tannins and just enough acid to lend freshness through the long finish."  Lisa Perotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate for Robert Parker, Drink it now to 2019+.
