88 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet-purple in color and aged 19 months in 300-liter hogsheads, the 2010 McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon presents aromas of creme de cassis, stewed plums and dried Mediterranean herbs with hints of cigar boxes and chocolate. Medium to full-bodied with a good amount of expressive cassis flavor in the mouth, it is structured by medium levels of grainy tannins and refreshing acid before finishing with good persistence. Drink it now to 2017.

90 Points James Halliday
Deep colour, and loaded with sweet black fruits, tar and a little licorice; full-bodied and showing warmth on the palate, the chewy tannins demand a little protein for maximum enjoyment. Drink to 2020.
