2010 d'Arenberg "d'Arry's Original" Shiraz Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $20)

91 points James Halliday: "Traditional style. Little sign of oak, sweet core of fruit, deceptively assertive tannin but an overall impression of softness. It doesn't look to be an ageworthy style but it will be. Blackberry, iodine and raspberry notes. Ferrous tannin. Good length." (3/2014) 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid ruby. Intense red and dark berry aromas complicated by notes of rose, white pepper and licorice. Explosive black raspberry and cherry compote flavors are firmed by a touch of bitter chocolate and show very good depth. Dusty tannins give grip to a long, focused finish. This wine acts like a ...Read More »

2010 d'Arenberg "Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $60+)

96 points James Halliday: "An unambiguously top class version of a distinguished lineage; the colour is as bright as the spicy red fruit aromas of the bouquet, the palate with a cascade of red and black fruits, spice, licorice and bitter chocolate flavours, yet providing all this with finesse and calm." (2/2014) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Dead Arm Shiraz has slightly evolving blackberry notes wafting over a core of forest fruit coulis and dried mulberries accented by suggestions of sandalwood, Indian spices and dried Mediterranean herbs.

2014 Oakridge "Over the Shoulder" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley (Elsewhere $20)

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 with very moderate alcohol, bright, crunchy berry fruit, spice and lovely earthy, forest floor nuances. Think of it like a great bottle... Read More »

2010 Leeuwin "Art Series" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Bright crimson-purple; the fragrant cassis-filled bouquet sends its unequivocal message of that rarest of beasts: a totally delicious young cabernet that has a mellifluous palate of redcurrant and blackcurrant fruit supported by superfine tannins and subtle French oak." (2/2014) 95 points Decanter: "Lively, lifted cherry fruit. Medium body with impressive intensity and persistence. Vivacious, feminine and silky smooth, yet also with loads of stamina and energy." 94 points Wine & Spirits: "The purity of this Cabernet is impressive, it's clear black currant flavors fresh and crisp, uninhibited by its oak ag ...Read More »

(2/2014) K&L Notes: All estate fruit from Oakridge Estate in Yarra Valley. The wine shows lovely perfumed notes of red currant, raspberry and toasted spices. The palate is medium bodied with great vibrant energy and fine soft tannins.

2012 Stella Bella Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $15+)

91 points James Halliday: "Nicely put together. Gives an impression of integrity. Choc, mulberry, blackcurrant and bay leaf notes. The flavours swing through the palate with relative ease, but curls of tannin build as the wine progresses through the mouth. As is customary with Stella Bella wines; balance is judged just so." (7/2015) K&L Notes: Rich, full bodied, powerful Magaret River Cabernet at an exceptional price. Packed full of blackcurrant, cassis, dark chocolate tones, toasted spices from French oak maturation.

2012 Howard Park "Scotsdale Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Great Southern Western Australia

97 points James Halliday: "From the near-40yo estate vineyard at Mount Barker; separate lots were either pressed at dryness or given post-ferment maceration, and kept separate during 20 months maturation in French oak (40% new). Picture perfect, not a hair out of place as the blackcurrant fruit, a touch of black olive and cedary oak flows seamlessly along the supremely elegant palate."

2012 S.C. Pannell "The Vale" Shiraz-Grenache McLaren Vale South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "A blend of Shiraz and Grenache, old vines the source of the grapes. A fragrant bouquet speaks of the seamless union of the high-toned red fruits of the Grenache and the black fruits of the Shiraz; the role of tannins is important, that of oak less so. Will flower profusely with 2 or 3 years in bottle." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The truly wondrous thing about wine is that speaks of where it comes from.

(7/2013) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Smooth and expressive, brimming with coffee-accented blackberry and purple plum flavors, tumbling through the open-textured finish. Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvèdre." (5/2014) K&L Notes: Sons of Eden is a new project from two guys who really know what they're doing. W... Read More »

2013 Howard Park "Leston Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "Both opulent and fine at once. The bullseye has been hit dead centre here. Oak, fruit, acid and tannin all pull together. Excellent wine, builds its own landscape. Blackcurrant-like flavour, luscious, is slipped with coffee-cream, leather, cigars. Dusty, fruit-filled tannin winds its way through, inexorable, unhurried, a river flowing over smooth long stones. The longer you sit with it, the lower the price seems." (7/2015)

2012 Howard Park "Leston Vineyard" Shiraz Margaret River

95 points James Halliday: "Spent 18 months in new and 1-year-old French barriques. As the Shiraz vines in Margaret River have become mature, so has the depth of the fruit intensified, this wine a prime example, as its layers of black fruits and almost creamy tannins show; needless to say, the cedary impact of the French oak also plays a significant role."

A good commercial cabernet from the right region." 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Editors’ Choice* Full bodied and richly textured, this is an approachable wine that should nonetheless drink well through at least 2025. Toasted coconut accents cassis and blackberry fruit, folding in hints of vanilla on the long, mouthwatering finish."

2012 Penfolds "Bin 138" Old Vine Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro Barossa Valley

94 points James Halliday: "A vintage well suited to this blend of 66/23/11% shiraz/grenache/mataro, creating a wine of even flow, lively acid balance and firm, finely textured tannin support. Violet fragrance and well-defined berry fruits are layered with pepper and spice, confirming a restrained, poised and ageworthy Bin 138, set to go down among the greats." 93 points James Suckling: "The blend in 2012 is shiraz (66%), grenache (23%) and mataro (11%) and shows a wealth of red and blue fruits on offer with attractive brambly summer berry aromas, quite fresh and fragrant, some tarry blue fruits too.

Immediately perfumed and expressive but with the grunt of tannin and fruit to give it real substance. Saturated plum, soy, five spice and smoky, musky oak. The very epitome of a modern major general release shiraz."

(3/2013) 94 points James Suckling: "Clean blueberry and blackberry character with hints of flowers. Full body, wonderful fruit and subtle black pepper and sandalwood. Balanced and refined. Better in 2016, when everything will be in harmony, but beautiful now." (5/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Polished, expressive and focused, with juicy flavors of black ...Read More »

2013 Dalwhinnie "The Hut" Pinot Noir Pyrenees

94 points James Halliday: "An opulent, full-bodied pinot noir, flexing its muscles from the bouquet through the palate and the finish in particular; it is the finish that saves the wine from the 'dry red' description, the ultimate insult to a pinot noir; here there is a vibrant and intense line of dark cherry and plum that is pure pinot. It will age very well indeed." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Wine writer Huon Hooke says, "Sit back and watch, as Dalwhinnie etches a name for itself, not only among the great wines of Australia, but the world."

2014 BK Wines "Cult" Syrah Adelaide Hills South Australia

Winemaker's Notes: "When Cult Syrah first hit the scene he was a mouthy upstart; a belligerent, in-your-face raconteur with noisy, controversial opinions on everything from Justin Bieber to geopolitics. With every subsequent vintage he has matured, though we would never say mellowed. Gone are the screaming outbursts and rough edges verging at times on frivolity, replaced by a seriousness of purpose and the wisdom not to offend. He’s a grown-up sherbet, a tannic sorbet. He’s black pepper, curry leaf, cumin, bacon fat and salt. Where once he fidgeted, Cul... Read More »

Bright purple-crimson; while all about cassis and plum fruit, it is no lollipop wine, for the tannins are in the background standing by for the future; long and complete." (9/2013)

2012 Eden Road "Long Road" Shiraz Canberra Hilltops New South Wales (Previously $27)

It was mostly grown at Gundagai (92%) with input from grapes grown in the Canberra and Hilltops wine regions. 25% whole bunches. It tastes of roasted nuts, red cherries, undergrowthy herbs and woodspice. Its balance is impeccable, as is the wrap of tannin though the juicy finish. Exciting face of Aussie shiraz."

2013 Glaetzer-Dixon Family Wines "Avance" Pinot Noir Tasmania

93 points James Halliday: "Bold aromatics. Combines sweetness and savoury, herbal notes to great effect. Ripe, juicy raspberry and strawberry fruit flavours come face to face with dry woody spice, aniseed and sweet smoke. It's an unusual profile but its appeal is clear."

2013 Glaetzer-Dixon Family Wines "Mon Pere" Shiraz Tasmania

96 points James Halliday: "As remarkable as it sounds/seems, this label makes shiraz in Tasmania look easy. This is a top-notch wine in anyone's language. It's cool climate by nature but mostly it's exquisitely well polished. Peanuts, licorice, bright cherries, cloves and a wide assortments of spices. It all unfolds slowly, magically, inexorably. Quite mesmerising." 94 points James Suckling: "Plenty of sweet biscuity spices on offer in this rare Tasmanian shiraz, this has bright raspberry and red plum fruits on the nose, some musky florals and fine-ground peppery elements too. Good complexity. The palate deli ...Read More »

2009 Glaetzer "Amon-Ra" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

96+ points Robert Parker: "The 2009 Amon-Ra Shiraz displays a very deep purple-black color and floral notes of violets and wilted rose petals over mulberries, blueberries, star anise, mocha, fenugreek, cumin seeds, cloves and tree bark plus some toasty oak. Full-bodied and rich yet not overly so, it has refreshingly crisp acid and firm grainy tannins texturing the long spicy finish. Give it at least 2 years more in bottle and consider drinking it 2013 to 2024+." (12/10)

2000 Barossa Valley Estate "E&E Black Pepper" Shiraz South Australia

95 points Wine Spectator: "Dense, dark and powerful, a mighty mouthful of black pepper-scented black cherry, stewed plum and licorice flavors that echo beautifully on the long, fine-grained finish. Somehow it finds an elegant balance in the end. Best after 2005. 850 cases imported." (12/2003) James Halliday: "Complex, intense blackberry and powerful oak aromas..." (8/2003)

1998 Hardys "Eileen Hardy" Shiraz McLaren Vale-Padthaway-Clare South Australia

96 points Wine & Spirits: "(no tasting note given)" (2/2002) 95 points James Suckling: "Dense and brooding when first released, it has already evolved into a highly sophisticated marriage of fruit and oak on bouquet and palate; the latter's excellent savoury tannin structure balances the lashings of opulent fruit." (7/2011) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Seemingly close to maturity, this dark plum/ruby-colored 1998 offers up sweet aromas of damp earth, compost, pepper, and black currant fruit. The wood component is kept well in the background in this distinctively earthy, ripe, fleshy, full-bodied Shiraz. Consume it over the next decade. ...Read More »

2012 Moorooduc Estate Pinot Noir Mornington Peninsula

94 points James Halliday: "Full, clear crimson-purple; an exceptionally velvety, rich pinot at the start of its life; over the next 5+ years all manner of enticing aromas and flavours are certain to develop; I seldom give points for what I think a wine will become (let it wait its turn) but this is an exception. So if you buy it, drink a bottle, but keep the others." (2/2014)
