Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This Shiraz opens with enticing, fresh aromas of peppery raspberry and currants. Fruit driven with generous red fruit and cassis on the palate. This highly approachable, well balanced wine will be a crowd pleaser. Serve with pepper steak. Good value. Tasted Nov 22, 2019 www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of dark berries, currant, leather, cedar, and warm spices. Full bodied with bright acidity and firm, young tannins on the palate. Fruit is ripe and plush, with hints of oak, warm spice and vanilla. Enjoy with a grilled steak.
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A big Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Southern Australia, with rich, dark berry aromas. The American oak aging is evident in the notes of vanilla on the palate and in the finish. The acidity and tannins are well balanced for the vintage but further ageing or a hours long decant is recommended. Beef would be the natural pairing.
From the Barossa Valley, Peter Lehmann's The Barossan Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 is amazing value under $22. Produced by Casella, a family-owned company founded by Filippo and Maria Casella in 1969. Fragrant on the nose with earthy violets, spiced plum, full-bodied and juicy with layers of ripe blackberry, plum, savoury herbs, sweet dried tobacco leaf and smoky vanilla flavours on the palate. A soft, big Aus red complemented with plushy tannins. This wine was matured 12 months in American oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews
