Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Very full wine and full fruit flavour. Solid tannins with a long fruit finish. The only bad thing about this wine is it is out of stock in Ontario!

Wineboy rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Pirramimma is never shy with the power of their wines, nor, are they shy with tannins. This wine delivers. Big powerful bouquet, followed by a big powerful set of flavours. Fruit is cassis, oak is coconut and arrives late. Tannins are present so you could age this 3 - 5 years or drink now if you don't mind some tannins and want the youthful power of this wine to not be lessened as happens with all wines over time.

Natalie's Review

Pirramimma Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, Mclaren Vale, South Australia, Australia: This wine almost jumps out of the glass in its vibrancy and intensity. It's incredibly flavourful for Australian cabernet which is usually far more austere than shiraz. Pair this full-bodied red wine with pepperoni pizza. Highly recommended.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
