Member Review by rmcunningham:

I had not tried this one before and we had it with Christmas dinner. It was pretty good and held up to a decent Bordeaux we finished right before.

Needs a little time to open up (would benefit from decanting) reveals aromas of violets, cherries and oak. Well balanced

Red Knot reflects the typical big-bodied shiraz from South Australia with dark fruits and peppery black cherry on the nose and palate.

This Cabernet Sauvignon from South Australia shows ripe cassis fruit and a velvet texture. Bright acidity and lively tannins round out the finish.

Colour: Deep red with youthful purple tints.Aromas: Powerful ripe strawberry and blackberry aromas and added complexity with hints of spice, chocolate and savory American oak.Flavours: The sweet strawberry mid palate is balanced with fresh acidity and lingering richly toasted oak. A full bodied wine with luscious fruit that is enticing in its youth, but will also reward 2-3 years in the cellar.
