“…a blend matured in French oak (50% new) for 18 months. A first for the Yarra Valley, with a radically different label design to Soumah’s other wines. It seems the wine has been bottle-aged pre-release, and that was a smart decision, for all the parts of the wine have coalesced and the tannins have softened. It’s lusciously juicy, with structure behind the delicious fruit flavours, the balance very good. An eye-popper.” (96 Points)
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020 [2016 Vintage]

“The colour is deep red with a tinge of purple and the bouquet is a riot of mocha, coffee, chocolate and cigar-butt: heavy-char oak being very prominent. There are also berry aromas and flavours: cassis and spicy berry flavours galore, and it finishes with a touch of black pepper. It’s fruit sweet in the middle and quite appealing, although the charry oak is rather dominant.” (90 Points)
