Natalie's Score: 91/100
A terrific and vibrantly flavoured Australian Cabernet Sauvignon from the cool climate of Coonawarra. Great balance and restraint, yet there's no shortage of flavour and character. Black fruit, spice and smoke. Perfect for prime rib.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: medium rare venison backstrap with roasted new potatoes; grilled steaks or roast beef.

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Notes of cherry and mint with a palate that is red fruit forward with hints of vanilla and forest. Great with juicy burgers on the BBQ.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Showing cherry, cranberry, eucalyptus, cola notes, with medium tannin. Medium bodied with high tannins. Similar in mouthfeel to a carbonic macerated Beaujolais nouveau, this Australian gem from Coonawarra is drinking well. Pair with burgers or Italian tomato based dishes such as a veal ravioli. Tasted March 2017. 88 points.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Pronounced aromas upfront, showing high notes of plum, berries and eucalyptus while ripe berries, vanilla and cedar/pine notes dominate the palate. It showcases an unexpected light weighted mouthfeel but still carries concentrated fruit flavours, a high acidity and a grippy mouthfeel. Enjoy with duck ravioli.
