Big and powerful with wonderful fresh fruit aromas set against a backdrop of lightly spicy and used oak. On the palate this is both chewy and fresh with acids that seem a bit high all things considered. There’s lovely balance and purity to the black currant fruit on the palate which shows a little minty quality on the back end. The finish is nicely dry, rather muscular and once again both chewy and refreshing, though the wine is showing it’s age with a bit of a lack of freshness as far as the fruit is concerned. 91pts

This is a beautiful red wine. Lots of cherries and dried fruit on the nose, with a beautifully smooth finish.

Rich dark fruit on the nose, slightly tannic with complex yet balanced flavors. Lovely wine with a meal or on its own

This blend of cabernet sauvignon and shiraz is a selection of the 20 best barrels of 04 reds in Yalumba s cellars half of it aged in new French barriques and American oak hogsheads the balance in older French oak. It s ripe and powerful packed with blackberry flavors and tough full-on tannins. Heady and meaty this needs a few more years in bottle to settle down. For thick-cut lamb chops. Wine & Spirits.

Deep red. Powerful blackberry and cassis aromas complemented by roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Lush creamy and sweet with deep dark berry liqueur flavors firmed by solid but harmonious tannins. Quintessentially Barossa with broad sweet fruit but also admirable finishing thrust and focus. There s no rush to drink this serious wine. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
