'What a wine! I can't remember tasting a better young Peter Barlow than this, which fully expresses the brilliance of the 2017 vintage. Serious, focused, compact and built to last, it has very fine 65% new wood, classic blackcurrant and cedarwood notes, graceful tannins and a long, nuanced, refreshing finish. Drink 2023-32.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 96/100

'Rich, savoury black fruited expression with hints of cedar spice and violet lift. Dominant tannin in the mouth with tense acidity and plush to the finish.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 95/100 (Gold)

'Cabernet from farm’s oldest vineyard. 2017 still youthfully sombre, introverted & restrained by regiment of tannins. Behind lies muscular dark fruit, smartly spiced with French oak, 64% new, all aligned with 14.5% alcohol. Patience required. No 2016.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)
