Kimberly scored this wine: 97/100

After almost 7 years in the bottle this cab was dark ruby with a garnet hue on the rim and had wonderful aromas of dark berries, mint, licorice, forest floor, white pepper and other spices, dark chocolate, and plums. The flavours were predominantly dark berries, dark chocolate and leather. The tannins were well integrated; it had well balanced acidity; and the finish was long. It was delicious with a roast leg of lamb rubbed with dark spices and served with roasted vegetables.

A special vintage champagne. Aromas of salted almonds, green apple and apricot. Abundant lemon on the palate with lasting bubbles and a dry lemongrass and green apple finish. Tasting this was a treat! Enjoy it with any type of creamy cheese or on its own.

This Shiraz is a step above the rest. Licorice, blackberry, pepper, and cedar aromas. It's dry, tannic and delicious. Leather, coffee and cocoa on the palate, full bodied with a lengthy finish. A gift from the Barossa Valley.

Minerality, toasted nuts, freshly-baked bread and a hint of vanilla on the nose turn into a complex blend of baked apple follwed by lemon zest in the mouth. This award-winning wine from the Speck family is a superior sparkling wine for a special occasion. I'd serve this gem with grilled scallops or chicken satay.

This elegant red blend has smoky aromas of tobacco, chocolate, and coffee.. The rich plum, tobacco, and dark chocolate flavours are velvety smooth on the palate but the tannins still grip slightly. An excellent dry red that could be cellared for a few more years.
