94James Suckling

Looking very composed, tidy and tightly packed. Raspberry, cassis and blueberry, plus a leafy edge with graphite. The palate's faultless, and tannins are a feature. Really terrific length and depth with lots of potential.

94Wine Enthusiast

...cedary and complex upon opening, easily mixing cassis, plum and blackberry with vanilla and baking spices. On the palate, it's dense and concentrated...long, mocha-tinged finish wraps things up, combining dusty tannins with mouthwatering acids.

93The Wine Advocate

...pure black fruits aromas with a pronounced black plum and black currant nose with underlying pepper, Provence herbs and licorice suggestions. Big, dense and profoundly expressive in the mouth, the palate is firmly constructed with chewy tannins and great persistence.

92Vinous / IWC

Expansive cherry and cassis aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice, mocha and cracked pepper...concentrated dark fruit and spicecake flavors and a touch of vanilla. Closes on a sweet blueberry note, showing very strong persistence and just a hint of dusty tannins.

17Jancis Robinson

Lightly minty and spiced but the dominant aroma is peppery dark fruit with an attractive dusty quality. Dark and a little charry on the palate, some cassis but the Cabernet does not overwhelm the Shiraz, surprisingly. Finest of dry tannins are what give this wine its fresh finish.


Australia, South Australia, Barossa Valley

South Australia is the nation’s most important wine region. South Australia is to Australia what California is to the U.S. About half of Australia’s wine comes from South Australia and many of the country’s most acclaimed producers are there. Wineries based in South Australia include Penfolds Grange, Torbreck, Amon Ra, Henschke and Jacob’s Creek. The prestigious Barossa Valley is located in South Australia, and is often compared to Napa Valley because it is gorgeous topography covered in grape vines. First farmed by 19th century German-speakers who immigrated from what is now Poland, the Barossa Valley is the crown jewel of the region. South Australia has widely varying climates, from very hot, dry areas to cooler, high altitude areas. There are more than 150,000 acres of vineyards in South Australia, with more being planted each month. Shiraz is king, though the region also produces Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Mourvedre, Chardonnay and Semillon.
