91 Points Robert Parker

The Cabernet and Shiraz blends begin with the 2006 Shiraz (70%) – Cabernet Sauvignon (22%) “Koonunga Hill”. Purple-colored, the wine offers meaty black currant, blackberry, and blueberry aromas. On the palate the wine exhibits remarkable focus and structure for its humble price. The fruit is grapy and primary as well as intensely flavored. It should evolve for several years and drink well through 2022 if not longer. It is a fantastic value. As an aside, Peter Gago presented a 1976 Koonunga Hill to demonstrate the aging potential of this cuvee. The wine was showing a bit of age aromatically but none on the palate. At age 31, this wine (which probably cost several dollars on release) is right at its peak (my score 94 points).

90 Points James Halliday

Savoury spicy nuances to the bouquet give way to blackberry fruit on the medium-bodied palate; supported by fine tannins and an echo of oak. Drink to 2014.

87 Points James Halliday

Light- to medium-bodied; moderately savoury/earthy overtones to the black fruits; balanced oak and tannins; slightly disappointing given the vintage. Drink to 2013.
