2012 S.C. Pannell "Tinto" Old Vine Grenache-Touriga National McLaren Vale South Australia

93 points James Halliday: "*Special Value Selection* A blend of Garnacha Tinto (Grenache by any other name) and Touriga, part coming from McLaren Vale (Garnacha) and part from the Barossa. It is a joyously schizophrenic blend, half saying drink without any introspection or hesitation, the other inviting deconstruction of the very different spice influences, and also the differing appeal of the raspberry and cherry fruit flavours." (3/2014) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "This is our first Tinto that is made solely from Grenache and Touriga Nacional, two of my favourite red grape varieties. Thi... Read More »

2012 Penley Estate "Phoenix" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra

92 points James Halliday: "Bright, youthful hue; an appealing medium-bodied palate brings cassis, spice and cedary French oak onto centre stage, tannins in the wings. 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 John Duval "Plexus" SGM Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

95 points James Halliday: "Armed with flavour and dangerously drinkable. Red and black berries, ground Asian spice, earth, aniseed and a quick kiss of cedary French oak. Puts on an impeccable performance." (7/2014)94 points James Suckling: "Duval's regional red, which melds Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvèdre together seamlessly, is a stunning rendition in the 2012 vintage. The Barossan origin is strong in all aspects of the wine, which shows deep blackberries and other red fruits on the nose in addition to some gently earthy and tarry meat accents, hints of nutty oak and a sense of vibrant ripeness.

2012 Trellis (Amelia Park) Cabernet Sauvignon-Merlot Margaret River

Wow! An insane value in Cabernet from famed (Jimmy Watson Trophy Winner) winemaker Jeremy Gordon. Trellis is a new line of wines from Margaret River-based Amelia Park. The fruit, as with all of Amelia Park's wines, is sourced from some of the best vineyards in the region.

2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42) Top Pick!
2012 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $42)

96 points Decanter: "For me, the best edition of this well-crafted Shiraz. The nose is ripe and mellow, with layers of rich blackberry and plum. 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. Deceptively study tannins carry hauntingly throughout and merit considerable cellaring if you can manage to keep your hands off it! Drink 2018-2030."

2006 Mollydooker "Blue Eyed Boy" Shiraz South Australia

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Shiraz 'Blue Eyed Boy' is predominantly Padthaway fruit. Purple-colored, it has an intense aromatic display of smoke, violets, mulberry, blueberry, and chocolate. This leads to a full-bodied, plush, wine with layers of ripe, spicy black fruits, excellent focus and delineation. The tannins are well-concealed but this wine has enough stuffing to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink it through 2025."

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."

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.

2012 S.C. Pannell Grenache McLaren Vale

97 points James Halliday: "Hand-picked grapes were open-fermented and hand-plunged before spending 14 months in used French puncheons; Pannell recommends decanting several hours before drinking. Medium crimson colour introduces a wine that is eager to display its fragrant red fruits on the bouquet and on entry to the palate before persistent, fine-grained tannins make their presence felt. They are fundamental to both the present and future character of the wine, which will change with age, but in absolute terms be neither of higher or lesser quality than it is now."

94 points Jancis Robinson: "Medium to full red, with just a touch of purple remaining; powerful, complex dark fruits, chocolate and savoury lemon/vanilla oak on the bouquet, then a similarly powerful palate where earth and chocolate join the chorus of flavours promised by the bouquet; persistent tannins, of course. (Date tasted, June 19, 2002)"94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1997 Grange (a blend of 96% Shiraz and 4% Cabernet Sauvignon) looks to be a classic Grange, although slightly softer and more forward than the backward 1996. The saturated purple-colored 1997 offers a gorgeously sweet nose of blackberry li ...Read More »

2010 Sons Of Eden "Romulus" Barossa Valley Shiraz (Previously $70)

96 points James Halliday: "A deeper, more purple, and more dense, hue than Remus; the wine spent 20 months in American oak, which has combined with the opulent black fruits and licorice to provide a flamboyant wine that somehow cuts through its layers of flavour. These are two heroic shirazs."94 points James Suckling: "A firm and juicy wine with a dense palate of blueberries and minerals. Some licorice too. This is traditional and fruity but there is an outstanding fruit and tannin balance to it. Better in two or three years as the wood and fruit come together. Old vine wine!"92 points Wine Spectator: "Taut, focused and dark, with blac ...Read More »

2012 Dalwhinnie "Moonambel" Shiraz Pyrenees Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "The deep purple-crimson colour semaphores serious intent, thoroughly intimidating when you realise this is the fourth tier of Dalwhinnie's Shiraz releases; the intimidation continues with a black fruits, tar and licorice bouquet of what is an unashamedly full-bodied Shiraz needing to be left alone until '20." (7/2014)94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Shiraz Moonambel offers a gorgeous perfume of violets, aniseed and dark chocolate over a core of cassis, ripe blackberries and cedar plus a hint of spice box. Medium-bodied, fine, elegant and tightly woun ...Read More »

2012 Langmeil "Fifth Wave" Grenache Barossa Valley South Australia

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium garnet-purple colored, the 2012 Grenache Fifth Wave has subtle herb and dried leaves notes over a core of red currants, cranberries and Bing cherries, plus a touch of Szechuan pepper. 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. (91+)" K&L Notes: The Fifth Wave Grenache comes from a once-neglected old vine vineyard in Lyndoch. Langmeil winemaker Paul Lindner saw the potential for the varietal from this vineyard, and helped re... Read More »

2009 Penfolds "Bin 169" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia (Previously $225) Top Pick!
2009 Penfolds "Bin 169" Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra South Australia (Previously $225)

93 points James Halliday: "Deeply coloured and dark and brooding in nature, with mulberry and cassis fruit, charry oak and cedar on display; the palate is densely packed with tannins and opulent fruit, with the brooding nature of the vintage remaining on the finish; this wine will always be big boned and dark, a direct contrast to the '10." (7/2013)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2009 Bin 169 Cabernet Sauvignon presents an intensely minty nose with undertones of ripe cassis, eucalyptus, cedar and a touch of herbs. Ripe and expressive in the mouth it has bright acid and medium leve ...Read More »

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 Riposte "The Dagger" Pinot Noir Adelaide Hills South Australia (Elsewhere $22+)

95 points James Halliday: "The grapes come from the Charleston and Gumeracha districts of the Adelaide Hills, the clones being MV6 and 777; deliberately made as an early drinking style. Excellent crimson colour; the fragrant, floral bouquet floats on bright red cherry and spice aromas, the beautifully framed and balanced palate simply reinforcing the red berry fruits of the bouquet courtesy of persistent, but supple, tannins oak a bystander watching the sword play. Top class Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir, outrageous value." (5/2014) K&L Notes: A pure, aromatic, rich, juicy, fruit-driven Pinot from... Read More »

2010 Dalwhinnie "Moonambel" Cabernet Sauvignon Pyrenees Victoria

95 points James Halliday: "Classic Dalwhinnie style with abundant aromas, fruit on the fore-palate likewise; tightens up on the finish with tannin grip that will relax as the years go by." (12/2011)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 Moonamble Cabernet Sauvignon offers a nose of cassis, wild blueberries, toasty oak and yeast extract with subtle suggestions of pencil lead and chocolate. Full-bodied with a nice backbone of medium to firm, grainy tannins and very crisp acidity, it has a long savory finish. Delicious in this youthful stage, it should develop gracefully and drink to 20 ...Read More »

2001 Marquis Philips "S2" Cabernet Sauvignon McLaren Vale South Australia

93 points Robert Parker: "The opaque purple-colored 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon S2 (100% Cabernet) was barrel-fermented in 100% new oak and aged in a combination of French and American barrels. It exhibits a spicy perfume of vanilla, black currants, sweet cherries, licorice, and cedar. Dense, opulent, expansive, and full-bodied, it is surprisingly fresh and well-delineated. I re-tasted this wine after it had been opened for 24 hours and double decanted, and it revealed sweeter tannin as well as greater fruit intensity, an attribute that should serve these wi...

2010 Penfolds "Grange" Shiraz South Australia Top Pick!
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 »
