94pts - Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

"A blend of 89% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc and matured in 52% new oak for 19 months, the 2008 Sophia is initially very closed on the nose with reluctant aromas of bilberry, black plum and a touch of cassis, later offering black olive and a hint of melted tar. The palate is underpinned by a firm tannic backbone, quite broody and uncompromising at first but delivering a scintillating, saline finish with crisp blackberry and boysenberry with great minerality. Drink 2012-2025."
