| 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "... this concentrated wine offers aromas of dark berry, cedar, espresso and kitchen spice. The dense palate doles out blackberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, dried herbs and tobacco alongside ample, velvety tannins. Drink through 2018."
17.5/20 Jancis Robinson.com: "... Intense dark crimson with deep velvet-red rim. Smells concentrated and dark at first, then, after some aeration, releases a stream of pure dark fruit, the Cabernet Sauvignon showing more here than on the Ad Astra. Rich and velvety on the palate, there's oak spice but it is very well integrated with the ultra-pure dark fruit. The finish is long, cool and rich. The tannins are extremely supple already but it has the freshness and structure for a long, complex development. Sophisticated and satisfying. Julia Harding MW (18-Jan-2015)
