'Barossa Shiraz gets most of the praise and glory, but I reckon they do Cabernet, albeit in a regional rather than varietal style, pretty well.
Liquorice, dark berries, clove and cinnamon, dark chocolate – smells rich and inviting. Full bodied, sweet dark cherry set with toasty spicy oak, well-knit tannin pushes it along, dark chocolate and a saline finish. Thick set and opulent style, but done well.'

'Deep, bright red/purple colour, with a fragrant and very attractive red fruits, peppermint and violet aromas; a quite lovely bouquet. The wine is also delightful in the mouth, showing lots of density, fleshy extract, concentration and tannin - but also attractive softness. Ripeness is examplary; it treads the line well, avoiding both excessive herbal characters and overripeness. A stylish, charming cabernet.'

'Red Stylish, with intense licorice, mint and eucalyptus notes that add an aromatic edge to the core of chocolate-laced cherry, plum and raspberry flavors, showing plenty of intensity on the finish. A juicy quality to the fruit flavors mingles with the thick, velvety tannins and lingering spice details.'

'The overtly flashy, heavy bottle is deceptive. This wine is not the blockbuster beast you might suspect. It's restrained (for Barossa), showing complex notes of rhubarb, raspberry, coffee beans, Dr. Pepper and mint chocolate. Tight-grained savory tannins and tangy juicy fruit are in balance with one another, forming a big but focused wine you could drink now with proteins or age for up to 15 years.'
