Parsons Flat Cabernet-Shiraz Blend Padthaway Shiraz Cabernet 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Parson’s Flat is a fragrant wine showing cherry and brambly fruit on the nose, mixed with Asian spices, dried herbs and background fennel characters. The palate starts with ripe blackcurrant fruit and has a fleshy and round palate from the Shiraz component. The Cabernet Sauvignon infuses in the mid palate with savory, leafy and forest floor characters and the wine finishes with beautiful long and fine tannins. This wine is ideally served at room temperature with hard cheeses and flavorful meat dishes.

This is hugely aromatic with jammy ripe black fruits, leafy herbal notes and plenty of toasty, smoky, mocha scented oak. In the mouth this oozes power with rich, deep, spicy licorice and coffee toned accents to the core of plum pudding and blackberry fruit. This very fleshy but the tannins do power through on the finish cutting it a touch short and leaving a toasty, oaky toned finale. This is big and in your face yet not completely over the top. 91pts

The 2007 Parsons Flat is by far the favorite wine for both me and my wife. I am down to my last 3 bottles and that makes me sad. I hope I can find something else as good as I no longer see Parsons Flat anywhere.

Lush and complex, this bold wine is a great reminder that there is something realy special and unique to the Aussie fruit/terroir relationship. Dark and seamless.

Absolutely gorgeous! If you can still manage to find it, buy enough to squirrel some enough away for a while, but be sure to enjoy some now! Color is intense, the aroma deep and layered. The flavor is rich and complex, layered like fine pastry. Tannins are firm and well-supporting yet lush and velvety, and the finish long and quite beautiful.

big black fruit, oaky, and delicious. I love the concept of a 70/40 cab shiraz. Great color and big bold flavor! Loved it.

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/51657 for £7.50 Henry's Drive Vignerons is a 95 hectare estate bought in 1992 by Kim and Mark Longbottom and named after the owner of the 19th century mail coach which once ran through the property in this part of South Australia.They make a selection of wines and this one is a blend of 70% shiraz [called syrah in other parts of the world ] and 30% cabernet sauvignon which has been aged in oak barrels.I opened my bottle last night as an accompaniment to my supper of beef stew and I did enjoy it.There is plenty of blackcurrant,blackberry,cherry and licorice style fruit there and there is a distinct spicy or peppery taste as well.The tannins are fairly smooth.I thought it reminiscent of a northern Rhone.I thought this a quality wine at a value for money price and have given it top marks.The well known wine critic Robert Parker gave this 93 of his points

A blend of 57% Shiraz and 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2007 Parson's Flat Shiraz-Cabernet was aged for 15 to 16 months in 60% American oak and 40% French, 40% of which was new. Very deep garnet colored, it has intense black cherry, blackberry and minted cassis aromas with nuances of tobacco, tree bark, earth and some licorice. Full-bodied with medium-firm silky tannins and high acid structuring the generous fruit, it has very good persistence. Just beginning to evolve and enter its drinking window, it should continue to cellar to 2016. ** SOLD OUT **

This gorgeous effort, made by winemaker Kim Johnston, from vineyards owned by the Longbottom family, is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. It is a big, beefy, opulent red with fabulous crème de cassis-like fruit intermixed with notions of bacon fat, espresso roast, and sweet berries. This voluptuous, fruit-forward effort is a classic example of what Australia does best... deliver extroverted, super-ripe, lusciously-textured, nearly over-the-top wines that are thrilling to drink. This 2003 should age nicely for 7-8 years.

The talented team of Sarah and Sparky Marquis are the winemakers for this estate, which has produced some impressive offerings over recent vintages. This 1000-case cuvée offers up a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sweet bouquet of black currants, blackberries, smoke, and earth. It is a graceful yet big wine, with medium to full body, a seamlessness that characterizes most of the Marquis wines, and a long, lusty finish with beautifully integrated acidity, alcohol, tannin, and wood. Drink it over the next 7-10 years.
