Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Decant for half an hour before enjoying. Lots of ripe and dark fruit and berry aromas (blueberry, currant), along with a bit of spice. Full bodied, medium tannin balanced with fruit forward flavours. Overall very pleasant and would be a great complement to steak.
David Skinner rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby and a pink rim. A nose full of blueberry, currants and a touch of eucalyptus. Rich fruit flavours primarily of blackberry, black currant and some spicy notes. Well balanced acid and tannins give the wine a terrific mouthfeel and full body. A very pleasant long finish full of fruit. Drinking very well now.

Try this with some mild sausage and a mushroom risotto.
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Barossa valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a stand out winner and offers exceptional value. Inky, dark ruby, 14.5% ABV. This wine is well-balanced, integrating nicely, great tannic structure, prominent blue fruit aromatics of blackberry, blueberry, black currant, anise and a hint of baking spice. Matured in 1/2 French and 1/2 American oak for 12 months prior to bottling. Ready to enjoy now and with 5 years, tannins will be well integrated and softened to perfection. Pair with BBQ beef, braised red meats, rack of lamb. @jonsteeves rated 89/100 - tasted May 2016
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Found the nose a bit closed, but with a little encouragement dried black fruit (think currants, blackberries) emerged along with tobacco, leather, a bit of spice; all that replayed on the palate and held on for a long finish. Some serious tannins envelop the package so drink now with a nice steak or hold for a few years. Good value.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

A New World wine that needs hearty food…
Presentation: Nice, distinctive, clean.
Appearance: Medium-dark ruby
Nose: Plums and blackcurrant, with a little spice and meat, as well as violets
Taste: Floral (e.g., violets), eucalyptus and berries
Finish: Tannins, earthy, leather, long
Overall impression: This wine can apparently be cellared for over 10 years, but can be opened much sooner to enjoy. Still, it needs old/strong cheese or hearty food as a pairing.
Value: 3/5
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Here we have a bold inky ruby red wine pouring with developing notes of raspberry, blackberry, black currants, violets and anise. The palate is satiny-smooth with ripe integrated tannins, balanced acidity, well-integrated alcohol and a long chocolate mint finish. Enjoy with grilled lamb chops or steak. Tasted May 2016.

Natalie's Review

Peter Lehmann Wines Portrait Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Barossa Valley, South Australia, Australia: A distinguished, balanced and well-structured Barossa Cabernet with classic aromas of cassis and blackberry. This wine elongates the mouth-feel and finish. The wine was aged in 10$ America oak and second-fill French oak. Perfect for BBQ meats. Drink: 2015-2021. 605741 14.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 91/100.

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.
