2013 Xanadu Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia Top Pick!
2013 Xanadu Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia

96 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* In my mind, Xanadu has established itself as one of the greatest Margaret River winemakers. Small batch open-fermented, 35% given extended maceration, blended and matured in French oak (40% new barriques) for 14 months. 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. Great value. This year (2017) marks 40 years of Xanadu Wines and following decades of winemaking excellence, it has firmly c ...Read More »

97 points James Suckling: "This is the Mouton-Rothschild of Australia - with a screw cap! Incredibly complex aromas of blackcurrants, spices, cigar box, and berries. Full body, a fantastic palate and polished tannins. Goes for minutes. Better in 2017." (3/2016) 96 points James Halliday: "The headline, the main text and the footnotes all say one thing and one thing only: purity. And I suppose I should add elegance. They simply don't come better in this mode." (10/2016) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Dark ruby red with a black core.

Light touches of eucalyptus follow the fruit through a dry finish. Fresh and lasting, this is an approachable cabernet for rack of lamb."

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 »

2013 Vasse Felix Cabernet Sauvignon Margaret River Western Australia (Elsewhere $40)

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. Super refined palate with smooth and fleshy texture. The tannins spread fine and even and there is plenty of red berry fruit and chocolate ...Read More »

2013 Raidis Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia (Previously $25)

Classic Coonawarra Cab packed full of blue fruit with lovely tobacco notes and whiffs of mint and eucalyptus. The fruit has great drive and purity. I think Coonawarra is one of the best areas for Cabernet in Australia and this bottle shows why for a pretty inexpensive price. Made by a small family owned operation the Raidis Family.

2014 Oakridge Estate "Willowlake Vineyard" Pinot Noir Yarra Valley

96 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked, destemmed, whole berry, 14-day ferment, matured for 11 months in French oak. Willowlake is the oldest Upper Yarra vineyard, and always has that little bit extra in fruit complexity - both red and black fruits, even if red is still the leader - fine tannins and oak totally in balance." (9/2015) K&L Notes: Another fantastic single vineyard Pinot from Oakridge, this time it's the Willowlake Vineyard Pinot Noir. Oakridge's wines re-define what many people think of Australian wines...they're the polar opposite of the over-ripe, over-extracted, "Fruit Bombs" p... Read More »

2013 Hentley Farm "The Beast" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Awesomely powerful, with a tsunami of sombre black fruits, licorice and tannins to match, overwhelm you the moment the wine enters the mouth. It is, of course, full-bodied, and doesn't have the fluid grace of the other Hentley Farm '13 Shirazs. It is indeed a beast, but will repay those who put their faith in the high quality corks used by Henley Farm." (3/2015) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz The Beast has an earthy/gamey nose with dried mulberries and preserved plums at the core, morphing into spice box, sandalwood and peppery notes.

If 250 dozen had been made, not 245, it would have won the Jimmy Watson Trophy." (9/2015) 92 points Vinous: "Vivid red.

2010 Domaine A "petit a" Cabernet Sauvignon Tasmania

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." 94 points James Suckling: "A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (35%), Cabernet Franc (4%) and ...Read More »

2014 Amelia Park Cabernet-Merlot Margaret River Western Australia

Its gorgeous perfume of blueberries, blackberries, camphor, licorice, and pain grille is followed by an inky/blue/purple-colored wine offering superb purity, full-bodied richness, and gorgeous depth as well as texture. This fabulous effort is another example of Ben Glaetzer’s brilliant talents. It should drink well for 15 years. (RP)" (10/2005) 94 points James Halliday: "**Five Stars** Deep colour, excellent hue; concentrated and rich red and ...Read More »

2014 BK Wines "Cult" Syrah Adelaide Hills South Australia

93 points James Suckling: "This cooler vintage has delivered an attractive pepper-dusted nose that is loaded with spice and fragrance, the oak is a support act to vibrant black cherry and blueberry fruits. The palate is all sappy and succulent, really layered, smooth and juicy tannins have good drive and depth, delivering a long, even blood plum finish. Drink now and up to 2022." (6/2016) 93 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Assertive blueberry and floral pastille scents are complicated by suggestions of black olive, allspice and cracked pepper. Silky, broad and appealingly sweet, showing excellent ...Read More »

2010 Andrew Thomas "Kiss" Shiraz Hunter Valley (Elsewhere $60)

95 points James Halliday: "Deep crimson; a complex and heady blend of red and black fruits, sage, hoi sin and well-handled spicy oak; the palate is fleshy, silky and full of fine grained tannins, vibrant acidity and a long finish, that slowly unravels to reveal the beauty of the wine within; whilst lovely now, will truly stand the test of time and reward patient cellaring." (2/2012) K&L Notes: Andrew Thomas' flagship wine, this is classic Hunter Valley Shiraz, sourced from the low yielding old vines of the Pokolbin Estate vineyard. Modern in style, this is intense and concentrated, with ripe b... Read More »

2014 Hentley Farm "The Beauty" Single Block Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "Size, shape, power and length; there's a lot crammed into this package, and yet at no point does it suggest being overdone. It's a fresh, vigourous red with anise, raspberry, squishy blackberries and wood spice notes ramping the appeal up high. It'll age but there's no real reason to wait." (3/2016) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive, with bold wild blueberry, kirsch and blackberry flavors that are powerful and persistent, pure and focused. Earth, sage and white pepper accents show on the long, velvety finish. (MW)" (7/2016) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Shiraz / Viognier The Beauty has a medium to dee ...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 »

2013 Firebird Shiraz (Nova Vita) Adelaide Hills South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "Beefy red with blackberry, saltbush and red/black cherry fruit flavours talking up a big game. Meat, spice and (dark) chocolatey oak notes add to the conversation. Tannin pulls the strings tight. Big end of town for the region, but done well." 93 points Wine & Spirits: "*Best Buy* Mark Kozned’s family were grapegrowers in the Caucasus before they emigrated after World War II. In 1999, they planted their first vineyard in the Adelaide Hills, eventually buying the old Nepenthe winery in partnership with Peter Leske. Their 2013 is a bright, evocative shiraz emphasizing the relative coo ...Read More »

2013 Wirra Wirra "RSW" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "The continued refinement of the flagship wines from Wirra Wirra is evident in the 2014 RSW. Darkly coloured and darkly fruited, the palate is finely poised with grainy, slatey tannins saturated in blackberry-laden fruit, the finish long, savoury and extremely fine." (3/2016)
