| 95 points, James Halliday: "The depth of colour of the top-end Hentley Farm wines is unequalled, it seems almost black until you look at the rim, which is purple-crimson. To say the wine is full-bodied is a masterly understatement, I shouldn't play god or de facto winemaker, but I have to wonder what the wine would deliver with only 14.5% alcohol in a year such as '10; having got that off my chest, you cannot separate the tannins from the fruit, or vice versa, and the alcohol only becomes obvious if you go on a mission looking for it."
