Reviews and Ratings

Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A beautiful deep red Cabernet Sauvignon with a purple hue around the rim and aromas of blackberries, cherry, tobacco and a little menthol. The 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Shiraz has flavours of dark berries and vanilla with light tannins and a slightly sweet finish. A nice jammy taste with a smooth finish and is nicely balanced.
Great wine with strip loin steak and grilled asparagus
Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Talk about great value. This beautiful Red Knot Shingleback Cabernet Sauvignon is under $20 and is packed with juicy flavours of black currant and plum, cassis and chocolate. Nice firm tannins and a great lingering finish. A Winner!
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Vibrant deep red with purple hues. Fragrant blackberry and cassis aromas with nuances of bay leaf, chocolate and vanilla / cashew oak. Typical of McLaren Vale: luscious blackberry fruit overflows from the mid-palate and is defined by fine tannins and slate like minerality. A full bodied wine with a long, lingering finish, showing harmonious integration of its fruit, structural and subtle oak elements

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Couleur rouge foncé vibrante avec des teintes violet. Arômes de mures et de cassis avec de nuances de feuilles de laurier, de chocolat et de vanille et de chene acajou. Typique de McLaren Vale : les mures riches débordent du palais intermédiaire
