2012 Elderton "Estate" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $27)

93 points James Halliday: "Matured in American and French puncheons for 18 months, it has very good shape and drive to its medium to full-bodied palate, with black cherry, bramble and fruitcake flavours, the mocha oak in balance."

2010 Langmeil "Blacksmith" Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley (Elsewhere $28)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet with a purple rim, the 2010 Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon opens with wonderfully intense, slowly evolving notes of creme de cassis, dried plums and menthol over hints of cigar boxes, cinnamon stick, dried herbs and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied with mouth-filling black fruit preserves and baking spice flavors, it has a medium level of fine-grained tannins, refreshing acid and a finish with very good length.

2012 Hewitson "Miss Harry" GSM Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points James Halliday: "Complex without being try-hard about it. Gorgeous mix of various berried fruits, licorice, grainy tannin, savoury-smoky notes and clovey oak. It's at the upper end of mid-weight but it's mouthfilling. High quality tannin and length. Warm finish but impressive all round." (7/2014)93 points James Suckling: "Lots of peppery fruit with plum, dried strawberry and spice. Full to medium body, integrated tannins and a beautiful, balanced finish. Hard to find something like this even in Châteauneauf. Wonderful value. Drink now." (1/2015)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby.

2011 Sons of Eden "Kennedy" GSM Barossa Valley (Previously $29.00)

93 points James Halliday: "Bright crimson-purple hue, although not deep; a 30/37/24% blend; particularly attractive wine in the context of '11, with abundant sweet dark berry fruit without any Turkish delight/confection flavours; there is a seamless flow of flavour from the first sip right the way through to the aftertaste." (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."

2012 Hewitson "Ned & Henry's" Shiraz-Mourvedre Barossa Valley South Australia

96 points James Halliday: "The grapes were grown on Barossa Valley terra rossa: oxidised iron red soils over limestone, and the wine was matured in used French oak. The vivid colour of the wine attests to its moderate alcohol, as does the joyful display of red and black fruits; the tannins are supple, the oak subtle but evident. Fantastic value."

2010 Torbreck "The Steading" Grenache-Shiraz-Mataro Barossa Valley (Elsewhere $50)

94 points James Halliday: "A blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro that has greater weight and complexity than the colour would suggest, even to the extent of touches of spice and chocolate; the overall balance between fruit, oak and tannins is good, and merits medium-term cellaring."93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Medium to deep garnet in colour with a touch of purple, the 2010 The Steading is a Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (Mourvedre) blend that radiates a gorgeous nose of dried mulberries, kirsch and red currant jelly enhanced by a baking spice undercurrent. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated on the palate, it h ...Read More »

Small wonder it is one of the best selling roses on the market, its upgraded label print and branded clear glass bottle drawing the eye; it is supremely elegant, fresh and balanced, its red fruits sparkling like stars on a clear night - there is no static or distraction from its message."

2010 Yalumba "The Signature" Cabernet-Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

Medium-bodied but powerful. Blackcurrant, dried tobacco, sawdusty oak and mint. Freshness has been maintained. Tannin, oak, fruit and acid work as one. Beautiful example of a traditional Australian style." (7/2014)93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Yalumba The Signature (Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz) has a slightly muted nose giving notes of macerated plums, blackberry preserves and menthol with suggestions of ...Read More »

Will live for an inordinately long time.."

2012 Hewitson "Baby Bush" Mourvèdre Barossa Valley South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "No mistaking its appeal. Berried flavour, complexing notes of tobacco leaf and leather, a general savoury/earthy/spiciness and the sweetness of fruit to keep you tipping back for more. Integrated tannin. More or less unresolved on the finish but time will take care of that."

2014 Kalleske "Clarry’s" Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre Barossa Valley (Elsewhere $30)

Wine Spectator: "Chalky tannins surround a sleek core of cherry and floral flavors, finishing with a strong meaty note. Needs time to come together. Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro. Best after 2016. (Web Only—2015)" K&L Notes: Clarry’s is a blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro with old vine Grenache from the 1940s and 1960s. The wine is fermented in open-top fermenters and basket pressed. To preserve the superb fresh fruit flavours of the wine, it was only aged in very old oak hogsheads and only for a limited time of one year.

2010 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia

100 points James Suckling: "The 2010 Grange arrives with much expectation and does not disappoint. This is a powerhouse, structurally superior to both the 2009 and 2008 vintages and breathtakingly dense, long and precise. The nose has cola, blackberry, vanillin, hard brown spices of all kinds, coal smoke, meaty charcuterie elements and a strong tarry, savory note that speaks of the 85% Barossa Valley componentry. The palate has super deep tannins that fan out through flavorsome black fruits. These are purposeful tannins; they bristle on the palate, tantalizing and assertive yet pla ...Read More »

2012 Langmeil "Hangin' Snakes" Shiraz-Viognier Barossa Valley South Australia

90 points James Halliday: "A 96/4% blend, incorrectly labelled, for 5% is the minimum requirement for front label disclosure (it's fine on the back label). As expected, the colour is vivid crimson-purple, and there are mocha/fruitcake flavours to burn, the tannins soft" (7/2014)90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright purple. Lively scents of blueberry, blackberry, cassis and anise, with complicating floral and cracked pepper nuances.

The flavours are of cassis, cherry and plum, finishing with a juicy twist." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Never released as a young wine, this spent two years on oak and then another half decade in Yalumba's marble cellars after bottling before its 2014 release.

Full-bodied, opulent, and viscous, with huge, but sweet tannin, decent acidity, and a muscular, long, 40+ second finish, this is a classic, potentially long-lived, Barossa blockbuster.

Vines planted 1853." (5/2013)96 points James Suckling: "Nick Stock: This ancient vineyard (planted in 1853) is a source of profound and distinctive wine that delivered handsomely in 2010.

Full-bodied with tightly-knit, mouth-filling red berry and herb-laced flavors, it has a good foundation of finely grained tannins and enough freshness to sustain the finish.

Dark plums, red fruit, coal tar and earthy aromas with citrus peel, spice and a gamey, savoury note. The palate is laced with pepper and spice, dark slate and minerals and squeaky tannins.

Try cellaring for 10 years minimum." (7/2011)95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Kaesler’s icon cuvee is their Shiraz Old Bastard, produced from a single vineyard planted in 1896, and aged 22 months in 100% new French oak.

2005 Greenock Creek "Seven Acre" Shiraz Barossa Valley

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Seven Acres Shiraz was also aged for 28 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Tar, mineral, earth notes, smoked meat, and blueberry scents jump from the glass of this full-bodied but restrained (relatively speaking) Shiraz. On the palate it is a bit more austere than its siblings with a bit more structure and apparent acidity. As a result, it will require longer cellaring and should offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2030. Greenock Creek Vineyard & Cellars, owned by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, remains o... Read More »

Its deep, sweet perfume of blackberries, camphor, damp earth, vanilla, licorice, and pepper is followed by a powerful, flavorful, intense wine revealing high tannins as well as impressive concentration. This superb Cabernet should easily age for 12-15 years." (10/2005)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Spicy, intense aromas of cherry, cassis, cigar box and mace.

There's a wealth of spice and soulful, earthy depth and a smoky tarry edge too. The palate is smoothly honed, with a dense mid-palate that offers bright blackberry and plum flavors.
