Accolades: 5 stars - Michael Cooper
Set for a long life, the powerful, concentrated 2010 vintage (5*) is still youthful. Grown in The 8 Vineyard and matured for 16 months in all-new oak barriques, it is deeply coloured and muscular (15 per cent alcohol), but not heavy, with dense blackcurrant, black-pepper and spice flavours, complex, savoury and firm. Best 2018+. Michael Cooper
