97 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate ... Made of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple in colour and prances out of the glass with vivacious blackberries, crushed black cherries, warm black currants and red currant jelly scents plus exotic hints of cassia, cardamom and star anise with a waft of underbrush. Medium-bodied, the palate has fantastic energy and beautiful poise, with lots of bright, crunchy black and red fruit plus a firm, fine-grained texture, finishing long and spicy. Simply superb!
