Natalie's Score: 90/100

Toasty with attractive black fruit and a hint of hint on the nose. The dash of Viognier in the blend gives the mid-palate a lovely lift. Terrific wine for this price point.

Graeme Tindale rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Very good - not too heavy. Expensive - there are as good a little cheaper.
It’s a wine of restraint and balance and finesse – so it deserves to be served at the dinner table. In fact, Yalumba winemaker Louisa Rose tries to make all the Yalumba reds as if ‘you’ve got a glass in one hand, and a piece of food in the other’. I like the sound of that, and like the taste of this. It tastes of kirsch, raspberries and toasty oak, and finishes with a delightful lick of licoricey tannin. Drink 2009-2013.
