Natalie's Score: 88/100

A savoury, meaty, juicy red that's bursting with black plums and berries. There's a little mint on the nose which gives the wine a pleasant lift. Darkly concentrated, this is a terrific party wine. Start a party just by opening it. Shiraz Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: lamb, roast beef, hambrugers. Heavenly Hamburger Wine

Delicious wine with pork medallions - suitable for quaffing
Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

When the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals said to the waiter, "We'll have the Fifth Leg, please!" he smiled at us as if we'd just ordered something best enjoyed in private. We immediately consulted our smart phones to make sure fifth leg wasn't in the urban dictionary. Apparently the fifth leg refers to the mysterious fossilized remains of a Tasmanian tiger with five legs found in a secret cave on the winery's estate. When our wine arrived the mystery was solved: this is a seriously smooth red with lots of legs.
Danielle rated this wine as 52/100 with the following review:

If someone else poured that in a glass for me, I would drink it and say it was delicious but I wouldn't think it. It had too much of a kick to it.
Shiraz fruit greets the front palate while Merlot plays a traditional role filling out the mid-palate. Cabernet finishes with fine and gentle tannins to create length on the finish. Soft and smooth, there are juicy dark berry fruits with spicy, balanced oak.
