Bright crimson-purple; Wolf Blass understood the capacity of Langhorne Creek to provide high quality red wine long before the rest of those from outside the region. This wine commences with cassis, but the finish has a real burst of fine cabernet tannins that add lift and zest to a very good wine. Rating 93 - Drink by 2025, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2014).
Solid red. Not overly varietal but smooth and well concentrated. Flavours of tar, blackberry and sweet Ribena. Fruit-driven and sweet-accented, but oh so ripe. Almost jammy. Boysenberried character adds freshness. Not hard to knock back a glass or two, that’s for sure. Rating 88 - Drink by 2019, Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au (JUL/2014).
