Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

From Australia's oldest family owned vineyard (est. 1849), "Signature" is one of their finest wines, which has been made now for ~50 years (first vintage was 1962).

A blend of Cab Sauv and Shiraz, the Aussies have mastered the art of pairing the elegance and complexity of Cab Sauv, with the richness and ripeness of Shiraz.

The 2009 "Signature" blends the two signature varietals from the famous Barossa Valley in South Australia bringing out the best characteristics of each.

Loaded with deep dark fruit, field berries, cola, mint, cedar and spice. Full bodied, rich palate packed with silky smooth delicious stewed fruit - very elegant!

Tasted November 2013 - 92 points.
