2016 Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Victoria (Elsewhere $19) Top Pick!
2016 Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Victoria (Elsewhere $19)

93 points James Halliday: "This vintage produced many full-flavoured pinots, this a very good example. Its colour is deep, the bouquet and palate focused around dark cherry fruit and attendant flecks of spice - spice that will grow with time. The length, balance and varietal fruit expression are an excellent base for the future (and for now). *Special Value Selection*" (7/2017) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Plush and elegant, with raspberry, cherry and fresh sage notes that are harmonious, juicy and intense on the finish. Drink now through 2027. (NM)" (7/2017)

2014 Jim Barry "Cover Drive" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "A classic Coonawarra style of Cabernet, this presents ripe currant fruit in a clean, spicy arrow of flavor. Light touches of eucalyptus follow the fruit through a dry finish. Fresh and lasting, this is an approachable Cabernet for rack of lamb." (10/2016) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a terrific value in balanced, ready-to-drink Australian Cabernet. It brings several Bordeaux-ish qualities to the table-medium body, silky tannins and aromas reminiscent of cigar box and Ribena-then adds varietally true flavors and a long finish.

2014 Woodlands "Margaret Reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Previously $50)

96 points Decanter: "A graceful and alluring blend which reveals its pedigree slowly, yet with great assurance. A focused core of both black and redcurrant fruit, which is still tightly coiled and reticent. Needs long cellaring." 95 points James Halliday: "79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 8% Malbec. Good hue; this is a dead centre mainstream Margaret River Bordeaux blend; like its SSB, it is a style that Margaret River achieves effortlessly (well, almost), with cassis, dried herb and black olive in a crib of ripe tannins and a dab of new French oak."

Full body, a fantastic palate and polished tannins. Goes for minutes. Better in 2017."

They simply don't come better in this mode." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Dark ruby red with a black core.

2013 Yalumba "Triangle Block" Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley South Australia

93 points Wine & Spirits: "A modern take on an old-fashioned style of Eden Valley Shiraz, this is bold in flavor but not at all massive - more about stamina and grace than density and weight. 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.

2010 Domaine A "petit a" Bordeaux Blend Tasmania (Previously $30)

94 points James Halliday: "The colour is exceptional for a 6yo wine, as is its freshness. My comments (and points remain the same...The high percentage of merlot is intended to make this a quick-developing wine, although matured in used French barriques for 2 years, plus further time in the cellar until it is judged ready. Judged by normal standards, extremely full-bodied, but by those of Domain A, less so. And it must be said the palate borders on outright juicy, with cassis, redcurrant, mulberry and spice."

Xanadu paints an unerring landscape of intense, elegant Margaret River Cabernet, with a stream of cassis fruit bordered by gravelly but fine tannins, oak insistently completing the picture.

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 »

All this conjecture is, of course, irrelevant: it is the outcome that matters - here a distillation of elegance." (2/2016) 93 points James Suckling: "Classic red fruits and chocolate here, boysenberry and bright cassis too. Really upbeat and bright, with a little gravel thread.

2016 Oakridge "Over the Shoulder" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley Victoria

A K&L Exclusive Direct Import. Made by 20+-year veteran, Yarra Valley winemaker David Bicknell. David is considered by many as one of the best winemakers in all of Australia. The Over The Shoulder label is basically estate fruit that didn't quite make the cut for the much more expensive single-vineyard bottlings but still represents excellent quality and an exceptional value. This is a more elegant, medium bodied style of Pinot with very moderate alcohol. Think of it like a great bottle of Bourgogne Rouge. The 2016 Pinot is sourced from vineyards in Glad... Read More »

Licorice and raspberry with spice woven through, but it's just that little something extra - difficult to define - that this wine most certainly has. It's pretty and light, but it has substance."

2013 Leeuwin Estate "Prelude" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

92 points James Halliday: "Sets the scene for its Art Series brother. Tight texture and structure, with blackcurrant fruit adorned with sprigs of dried herbs, firm tannins and subtle oak. Retasting shows the line and length of the wine, and encourages medium term cellaring." (2/2017) 92 points James Suckling: "This is layered and rich with currant, berry and walnut shell character. Full body, chewy tannins and a juicy finish. Love it now but it will age wonderfully. Screw cap." (7/2017) 91 points Vinous: "(30 percent new French oak) Bright ruby. Smoke-accented cherry and raspberry on the nose, plus a hint of cedary oak in the bac ...Read More »

2005 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet in color, the 2005 Amon-Ra displays aromas of pure black currant cordial, dark chocolate, violets and toast with a hint of raw meat and touch of Indian spices. Full-bodied with a taut and muscular frame defined by firm grainy tannins, it is still very youthful and offers fresh, crisp acid that retains nice vibrancy through the long finish. Drink it now until 2020+. (LPB)" (2/2013) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "From a single vineyard in the Ebenezer region, this is simply stupendous stuff. It is a bit Port-like in its rich layers of blackberry fruit, but it also displays gre ...Read More »

95 points James Halliday: "Bright, full color; the wine progressively shifts and builds ground from the bouquet through to the palate, finish and (in particular) the aftertaste, by which time the sheer power of the dark red/purple fruits takes hold. Balance in a bottle." 92 points Bob Campbell: "A beautifully balanced pinot loaded with charm and ready to enjoy. The color is youthful, bright and deep; the aromas lavishly sweet, ripe and dark cherry-like. Rich, fragrant and seductive, all at an affordable price. Delightful. (Huon Hooke)" 91 points Wine & Spirits: ""Starting off dark and pungently sappy, with floral scents of violets and ...Read More »
