4*: Although on the nose it is somewhat closed, the richness hits the palate
with great speed. Savoury, almost balsamic notes bring an appetising balance to
this stylish red. The finish is clean and fresh with great depth of flavour. - Panel tasting"

"Wonderful Western Australia red from Margaret River, the prime spot in this state for the cabernet sauvignon grape. It’s been a long wait for the Wine Society to restock Night Harvest’s finest cabernet but at last it’s here. This lush, chunky, crimson-purple red is aged for 18 months in French oak barriques and has a restrained 13.2 per cent alcohol content. I loved its lashings of complex, fat, cassis, cigar and eucalyptus flavours and so will you. Don’t be scared to lay down a screwcapped cabernet such as this. Research indicates that the wines keep as well as in bottles sealed with natural corks. - Jane MacQuitty"

"16.5/20 Attractive minerally well-balanced fruit. Lovely lift and a slightly salty finish. No rough edges. Surprisingly supple for such a young wine. Very appetising. "

"Margaret River inevitably invites comparisons with Bordeaux – the maritime climate, the grape varieties, and, in some cases, the prices – but here’s a wine that really is a match for the best the French have to offer. The purity of black fruit is simply gorgeous here, so fragrant and elegant, and on the palate, with its ripe tannins, there’s a lightness of touch and drinkability that lifts this straight to the top of the class."
