"An almost clear green in coulour, having fresh fruit and vanilla on the nose, with a soft and round finish on the palate."
"90 WE Very dry, dark, boasting extreme tannins along with solid, chunky fruit. The wine has acidity, black plum skins and licorice to go with this dense structure. A powerful wine"
"89 Pts. W&S. This blend of Merlot, Syrah, and Cab Franc over-delivers at this price. A plush, dark plum-scented wine with sweet oak accents. The flavors are cool and fine, the tannins possessing a peppery bite that screams for a steak."
"Ripe and pure mixed berry fruit, spice, beautiful creamy vanilla oak laid on thick, a musky perfume - aromatically highly appealing. It's full bodied with a flood of smooth flavour and creamy silky tannin that spreads out on the finish, becoming more open weave and prominent. Additional flavours of Barossa coal, meat and soy, but it's the seductive choc-berry fruit and oak flavours that carry the day. Delicious. Exemplary modern day Barossa Shiraz."
"60% Syrah and 40% Grenache, the 2009 Costieres de Nimes Cuvee Tradition possesses a dark ruby hue, excellent fruit, as well as some spicy herbs, pepper and earthiness. Consume it over the next 2-3 years."
"Antao Vaz, Roupeiro and Perrum Bright, crisp, refreshing wine with stone fruits, nice acidity. Perfect on the patio."
"92 pts - RP. A rather lush, nicely toasty, modern style, with creamy layers of fig, blackberry and boysenberry fruit rolling through, while dark anise and espresso fill in on the finish. The acidity is there to enable this to round into form, but still not quite the range of the top examples. Best from 2013 through 2021."
"It shines wrapped in a large straw yellow color with green reflections. The nose is characterized by ripe pineapple, cyclamen and aromatic herbs. It is very strong at the taste, with a good structure and an important salty aspect. Flexes its muscles in the mouth and is well structured in flavor. Lingering finish"
"Intense garnet red color of beautiful hue. Aromas of dried fruit and jam mixed with vanilla and green pepper. In the mouth has a great texture, with noticeable tannins, sweet and velvety. The taste is full, warm and ethereal."
