2015 Penfolds "Bin 389" Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia (Elsewhere $63)

97 points James Halliday: "Matured for 12 months in American hogsheads (32% new). Unapologetically made with the don't fix if it isn't broken aphorism. It is tightly structured, with faultless attention to detail - wheels within wheels stuff, but inexorable in sending its black fruits (blackberry, blackcurrant) flavour message.

2013 Jacob's Creek "Two Lands" Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia

Full disclosure here... I have always considered Jacob's Creek as more of a big grocery store brand and haven't often carried the wines at K&L. However if there is one thing I've learned being a wine buyer it's to always be prepared to change your opinion and to let your palate do the decision-making. I was quite simply blown away by the value for the money this Cab delivers. Two Lands is a collaborative project between Jacob's Creek and one of my longtime favorite Californian wine makers, Ehren Jordan of Turley/Failla fame! This is rocking Cab that coul... Read More »

Its flavors of red currants, jasmine and tar have forthright power, a zesty blast of Shiraz spice that leaves a clean, fresh taste in its wake. This performs far above its price, a wine to buy by the case and enjoy this winter into spring." (2/2017) 90 points Vinous: "Deep, lurid ruby.

(12/2006) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fashioned from a McLaren Vale vineyard, the 2005 Shiraz G.A.M. (named after the Mitolo children -- Gemma, Alexander, and Marco) is a deep ruby/purple-hued effort displaying beautiful blackberry, white pepper, licorice, and toasty oak notes. Rich, full-bodied, and intense, with blueberry and blackberry flavors, sweet tannin, and excellent purity, it is a tour de force in winemaking. Enjoy it over the next decade. (RP) ...Read More »

2015 Dandelion "Enchanted Garden" Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

91 points Vinous: "(made from vines that were reportedly planted in 1910) Green-tinged gold. High-pitched aromas of citrus zest, jasmine and quinine carry a chalky mineral overtone. Dry and linear on the palate, offering tangy lime pith and green apple flavors and a deeper peach note that appears in the midpalate. Shows very good clarity and mineral lift on the incisive finish, which leaves behind bitter citrus pith and succulent herb notes. (JR)" (10/2017) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Our Enchanted Garden Eden Valley Riesling is made entirely from a vineyard which was planted in 191... Read More »

2004 Rolf Binder "Hubris" Barossa Valley Red Blend

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rolf Binder’s top wines include the 2004 Hubris, a blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Mataro (Mourvedre). Fabulous aromas of blueberries, flowers, black raspberries, sweet cherries, graphite, earth, and espresso roast emerge from this fresh, full-bodied, intense wine. With tremendous length, definition, and vibrancy, it should drink well for 10-12 years." (10/2006)

2004 Two Hands "Angel's Share" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2004 Shiraz Angel’s Share is a hedonistic effort. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a fruit-filled wine with a gorgeously complex nose of lead pencil shavings, charcoal, blackberries, and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, with admirable purity, balance, and the tell-tale opulence and voluptuous texture this estate’s wines all seem to possess, it should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years." (10/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright medium ruby. Sweet dark berries and a musky, porty ripeness on the nose, with espresso, licorice and fruity pepper nuances. Fat and creamy in t ...Read More »

2006 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Impenetrable colour; a full-bodied palate, stacked to the gills with layer-upon-layer of blackberry, prune, licorice and plum fruit, yet the tannin and oak are not overdone, nor is the alcohol." (7/2008) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Shows a slightly lifted, peppery character on the nose, but also plenty of toasty oak and bold fruit. Loads of blackberries, blueberries and chocolate cascade over the palate, accented with enough spice and warmth to leave a fleeting impression of fruitcake. Lush and long on the finish. Drink now-2020 or beyond. (JC)" (11/2007) 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet, the 2006 Amon-Ra ...Read More »
