Natalie's Score: 93/100

Superbly made with rich lines of blackberry and blackcurrant flavours and smoky-sigh finish. Nice balance and mouth-watering juiciness. Great price-quality ratio. You'll be looking longingly at your glass with this wine in it. Wait no longer.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pork tenderloin, pepper steak.

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Notes of rich blackberry compote and cool peppermint fill the glass. Firm but ripe tannin, balanced acidity and seamless alcohol provide ample structure. Terrific value. Drink now through 2018. Perfect partner for a juicy T-bone hot off the grill.
Wolf Blass (the man) deliberately ignored Coonawarra during his executive winemaking career because he found the texture and flavour of its red wines incompatible with the style he favoured, but times have changed. Deep crimson-purple, it is more savoury and less oaky than anticipated, with a zesty finish and aftertaste to its array of blackcurrant plus Coonawarra's signal of earth and mint. It will sail through to 2020. Score - 93 James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, Nov. 2011
