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. Medium to full-bodied with loads of ...Read More »

2015 Pewsey Vale Riesling Eden Valley South Australia (Dry)

95-96 points James Suckling: "Very pure lemons and limes here that are concentrated, stony and fragrant. There's very pure fruit focus here, as this has the right balance of acid and texture. It's smooth, fleshy, dense, really deep and will drink early and live long." (5/2015) K&L Notes: A brand new release from perennial favorite Pewsey Vale Vineyard. This single vineyard site has been producing Riesling since it was first planted in 1847; the current owners replanted in the 1960's with cuttings from those original vines. The vineyard sits at around 1600ft in elevation; this altitude provides co... Read More »

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

97 points James Suckling: "The Vale is the old shiraz grenache blend but re-named to give extra focus to the fact that this really speaks loudly of place rather than grapes. The aromas are made of layers and layers of different forest berries, red to blue to purple tones, there's also dark plum and liquorice as well as sweetly fragrant baking spices. The palate has an intriguing mix of rich dark fruit flesh and seemingly weightless balance, tannins are fine and hold long but never heavy, superb. Drink now."

2011 Sons of Eden "Kennedy" GSM Barossa Valley (Previously $30)

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." (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 »

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 »

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 »

Fruit builds tremendous momentum before tannin applies the brakes. Monty for the cellar." Wine Spectator: "Grippy tannins surround a bright core of currant and pear flavors, picking up sage and savory spice as the finish lingers against the tannins. (Web-2015)" K&L Notes: Big, full throttle Cab from Biodynamic producer Kalleske in Barossa Valley. Packed with ripe dark fruit, scorched earth, oak spice and floral lift. I love the comb...

A focused and elegant wine, balance the key, but also having exemplary length to its white stone fruit flavours; the lingering finish and aftertaste also score." (1/2015) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "Mid straw in colour with a hint of green to the hue.

2014 Sons of Eden "Freya" Riesling Eden Valley South Australia

95 points James Halliday: "Elegance is its middle name but there's still a good core of limey fruit. It's a dry, structural style but its moreishness is right up there. Apple blossom and talc flavours aid this impression, as does a line of mouthwatering acidity. It's build to age, arguably, but as a young wine it's delicious." K&L Notes: "Freya" was the foremost goddess of ancient Germanic lands where the Riesling grape originated. This wine honours early German settlers who cultivated the first Riesling vine in the exemplary microclimate of the Barossa’s Eden Valley. Winemaker's Notes: "Aroma... Read More »

2008 Penfolds "Bin 389" Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia

Created by the legendary Max Schubert (who also brought Grange to the world), Bin 389 is often referred to as 'Poor Man's Grange' or 'Baby Grange', in part because components of the wine are matured in the same barrels that held the previous vintage of Grange. First made in 1960, this was the wine that helped to build Penfolds solid reputation with red wine drinkers. Combining the structure of Cabernet with the richness of Shiraz, Bin 389 also exemplifies Penfolds skill in balancing fruit and oak.

2002 Penfolds Bin 707 Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Wine Spectator: "Firm, focused and juicy, with an oaky frame around black olive, black cherry and a touch of pepper as the cedary finish sails on and on. Best from 2008 through 2017." (10/05) Bin 707 is Penfolds cabernet sauvignon Grange equivalent: ripe, intensely-flavored fruit; completing fermentation and matured in new American oak; and expressing the Penfolds’ policy of multi-vineyard, multi-region fruit sourcing.

Full-bodied and crisp, it is richly concentrated with coffee and raisin flavors, has medium levels of velvety tannins and excellent length on the finish. I found the nose to be showing just a little muted, so give 1-2 years and drink to 2024+. (LPB)" (2/2013) 97 points Wine Spectator: "Rich, ripe and harmoniously balanced, this is ...Read More »
