rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The 2008 Stella Bella Skuttlebutt Shiraz/Cabernet - composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon + 42% Shiraz + 8% Merlot; has attractive aromas of cranberry, pomegranate, black cherry and subtle lees. It is a medium bodied, dry, fruity wine; with good – forward/refreshing acidity, dusty/refined tannins and a long and smooth finish. It is food friendly; drink now and for the next 3-5 years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted at Australia Today 2014 Trade show http://grapeselections.com/australian-wine/ in Feb/14.

This is in fact a blend of 47% shiraz, 46% cabernet sauvignon and 7% merlot. The bouquet and palate have swathes of luscious black fruits, ranging through cherry, plum and blackberry to some spicy notes. This is a hedonistic style offering year-in, year-out enjoyment. Drink [until] 2016. Score: 90 Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
