97 Points by James Halliday in the Halliday Wine Companion 2020

"C.W. Ferguson was winemaker at Houghton from 1863-1911, and employed George Mann, father of Jack Mann, the latter legendary for his long tenure at Houghton. This is a delicious wine, the firm power of the cabernet augmented by the rich compote of plum ex the malbec. Its a style (and quality) Jack Mann would have approved of." James Halliday

94 Points by Huon Hooke in the The real review on 4/26/2018

This wine is vibrant red/purple with a garnet hue. Brooding and complex, with bright fruit characters of mulberry, plum, blackberry and cassis combined with cedar, spice, dark chocolate and hints of vanillin derived from the classy oak maturation. A wonderfully rich and complex wine. The full flavoured palate displays complex bramble fruit, dark chocolate and an imposing presence. A firm, but fine tannin structure supports a wine of great length and density. All at once rich, complex and perfectly balanced ensuring a long future with years ahead of it. Cellar for 10 years and beyond.
