Natalie's Score: 88/100

You want a big palate-wacker, well step right up my dear. This delivers a solid punch of fruit, alcohol and smoky oak. Loads of black cherry and blackberry. Ba-Boom!

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Has evolved after a couple years, with more density, more black cherry and raspberry notes, great acidity not normally found in pure Oz Grenache. A nice drink. Game meat is the ultimate pairing. I'm 90 on this. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Bright medium red. High-pitched raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by notes of cracked pepper and fruitcake. Lively, sweet and quite primary, with a youthfully tangy quality and tightly wound flavours of red berries and spices. Darker berry notes arrive on the nicely focused and persistent finish. Score: 89(+?) Source: Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar
