"Super vintage and probably the best Rosily wine yet released. This is a substantial wine with an imposing presence. First-class oak has been used to integrate with the fruit from this cracking year. Has a powdery dry thread through the sweeter fruit while the tannin is superbly managed. Super wine - 96 points" - Ray Jordan, WA Wine Guide 2017
"The standard 2014 Cabernet is a lovely wine, and the reserve wine shows more concentration and complexity, more alcohol (14.5%), more oak (French, 40% new, 60% 1-year old), more olives, more bay leaves and more gravel. The wine needs more time too. 96+ points". - Kim Brebach, Aug 2017
"Excellent regional Cabernet, beautifully turned out - 95 points." - Gary Walsh, The Winefront, July 2017
"An exemplary Cabernet. I think this is a stunner and worthy of a place in any cellar. Leaves plenty of wines twice the price in the dust - 95 points." - Ken Gargett, Winelinx Aug 2017
