"So much milk chocolate and dark fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy, almost dusty tannins. Some might call it a little coarse on the palate. It needs some more time, but turns to loads of milk chocolate on the finish. Pull the cork in 2013." JamesSuckling.com

"Blackberry, licorice and tar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm, silky tannins and a medium berry and vanilla aftertaste. Juicy wine. Best after 2008. 6,000 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Fine, sweet, scented nose, classy and persistent; medium-full, fairly concentrated, fresh acidity and firm tannin; quite dense and masculine for Palmer (68% Cabernet Sauvignon this year). Ripe rather than super-ripe, with long, close-grained, compact, complex red- and black-fruit flavours, excellent length. Very good, very pure, in a slightly severe mould."
