Wine AdvocateThe 1996 Terra Rossa First Growth (1,500 cases made from a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot) reveals an opaque purple color, as well as a superb, expressive aromatic profile with the aforementioned scents, huge, fat, full-bodied flavors that coat the palate, low acidity, sweet tannin, and a sensationally long finish. This spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon has few Australian rivals for richness and complexity. It should continue to drink well for 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorFirm in texture and beautifully focused, laying out its pretty blackberry, currant, sage and mineral flavors on a bed of fine-grained tannins. Has all the pieces in place, just needs time. Best from 2001 through 2006. 3,000 cases made.
