Natalie's Score: 88/100

Rich and fleshy black and purple plum aromas and flavours. Round, full-bodied and luscious. Very accessible, great party wine. Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: braised beef and grilled root vegetables.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Finca Flichman Expresiones Reserve Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon, in ratios 60%:40% respectively, was aged in American and French Oaks for 8 months. It is medium bodied, fruity to integrated, with intense aromas of black currant, blackberries, oak, coconut and vanilla. It has a solid structure, with good acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30 min), and a long finish. Drink now or cellar for the next 10 years - it has an aging potential of 1-2 pts (the Shiraz contribution will evolve extremely well); it is food friendly (protein rich foods), but will be better enjoyed as a sipper. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts - buy by the case. Tasted Dec/12.

Using only hand-picked fruit from the estate’s vineyards, this blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 8 months in a combination of American and French oak barrels. Offering impressive depth, this fruit-forward wine features concentrated blackberry and raspberry fruit flavours, a touch of spice, smoke and sweet oak on the lingering finish.
