Aaron:  The most notable feature of this red were the green stems of the grapes which actually helped build the flavor by adding earth-like tones without being unreasonable.  The bright and sharp smell featured lots of red fruit with some vanilla and the flavor was very similar.  Raspberry dominated the mouth while moderate tannins helped build the body of the wine.  90 points

Teri: This is a great buy to enjoy what Australia has to offer. This Shiraz-Cab mix has a wonderful smell followed by a full flavor wine with a long smooth finish. Plum, blackberry, and a hint of spice were the strong flavors I could pick out. Overall smooth, full, bold, and balanced. 90 points
