|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
India ink, graphite, blackberry, and a black cherry. A dark wine lover's delight. The taste is blackberry, graphite, and a touch of vanilla. A nice juicy acidity and some fine tannins. A great wine for read meat with pepper sauces.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The 2013 Australian Don't Hesitate Shiraz from McLaren Vale is dense ruby red and 14% ABV. This wine is concentrated and plump with robust red and black fruit, baking spice, cassis, eucalyptus. Dense fruit, medium acidity, medium tannins, well balanced and well integrated this is a crowd pleaser and value priced to please the senses and the wallet. This wineries exceptionally well with BBQ Gourmet AAA burgers or juicy rack of baby back ribs, or on its own with confidence. Enjoy 2016-2020. Tasted decanted 2h in Jan 2016.

|Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lots of dark fruit on the nose of this Aussie Shiraz. Cherry and blackberry very present and well balanced mouth feel. Spices and pepper on the finish- very nice . Would be great with philly steak sandwich - lots of onions.

Aromas of plum and berry. Smooth with a variety of dark fruits. Short, spicy finish. Tasted Jan 31/16
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Fragrant ripe blackberries with a savoury hint open for a full-bodied palate showing ripe dark berries, spices and savoury smoked meat. Well-balanced, dry and very appetizing, with an elegant finish.
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Wowza - lush and plush, blackberry, dark chocolate, leather, vanilla and spice. Nicely put together, smooth, round and full-bodied with barely-there tannins. Drink now.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby, dark plummy fruit, cedar, and dried herb. Full bodied, ripe dark cherry, berry, chocolate and vanilla notes, well integrated toasty oak, smoke, good balance, the acidity keeps the wine from feeling too heavy, tannins are fine grained. Big crowd pleasing wine at a decent price. Try with a hearty beef stew and stilton.
Tasted January 2016
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Deep opaque ruby colour. Thick and rich over-ripe plum, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla, eucalyptus, menthol and a hint of rubber. Smooth and surprisingly didn't taste the heat with 14% abv. Acidity does it's best job to keep it all fresh.
Tasted: January 2016
