|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Blackberry with some ripe red fruit aromas, with a little floral and vanilla. Medium tannins, acid and finish. All around a medium to full bodied red, that would best paired with some red meats or a meaty Italian dish.
|Chris Coughlin - WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Grippy tannins give way to red and blackberrys, some vanilla and floral notes. Could be my next steak wine.

The Colio Bricklayer’s Predicament Cabernet Merlot 2012 features aromas of cherry, raspberry, spice and leather. Flavours of cherry in this full bodied wine would pair well with steak! (88/100) Tasted July 14, 2014
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful ruby colour. Medium to full body. Sour cherry and red fruit on the nose, and a little spicy. Tart and fruity with young tannins. Drank on its own but would have preferred to pair it with some delicious BBQ'ed steak.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of sour cherry, plum, vanilla, blackberry. Grippy tannins and lots of them! The taste is black cherry and raspberry, with a short tannic cherry finish. This wine is certainly not about subtlety, and would need something like a pepper-encrusted rare steak to stand up to it.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby and full-bodied. Nose is clean with aromas of cherry cordial, cough syrup, tangerine,floral, wet wood, sweet spices and herbs. Young, grainy tannins on the palate with flavours a duplicate of the aromas. Acidity is medium+, with a medium+ fruit driven finish. Tannins suggest some ageing potential however fruit could be lost. 2-3 years at most.
Pair with BBQ steak, hamburgers, game.
Tasted - July 2014
