Natalie's Score: 90/100

Amazing restraint and elegance in this Aussie blend! Almost French in its character. Savoury, juicy cedar and wild blackberry notes. Incredible length.

Jeremy Sprott rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lot happening on the nose - jammy black fruit, pepper and spices, leather, cocoa, herbaceous, forest floor and maybe a little meaty. The taste carried through on the jammy black fruit and pepper/spices with some cocoa and mint in the background. Good structure, long berry finish. Suggest pairing with spice rubbed lamb (I paired it with sichuan-style lamb with cumin).
All components of this wine are in plain view; the spicy warm shiraz first; the slightly savoury Merlot second and the structured and almost strict Cabernet third; in time these components will amalgamate to form an impressive blend, supported by rich, toasty oak. Special Value. Score - 95 Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
