96 Points James Halliday
Extremely fragrant, the medium-bodied palate correspondingly intense and long; confusingly, it has a certain dark-fruited austerity, yet is supple and Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot/Malbec/Petit Verdot.
94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2008 Dry Red No. 1 is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Malbec and 4% Petit Verdot and is matured in 100% new oak. With a deep garnet-purple color it is scented of warm blackberries and black currant, eucalyptus, some cinnamon, pencil shavings, and dark chocolate. The palate is a little tight and restrained yet displays remarkable intensity supported by medium to firm finely grained tannins and high acidity. The finish is very long. Give this beauty a good 5 years cellaring, and consider drinking it 2015 to 2025.
