"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Shiraz Cabernet Anaperenna is intensely scented of cassis, crushed blackberries and black cherries with hints of cedar, cloves and anise. Full-bodied and full-throttle on the flavors, it fills the mouth with primary black fruits and baking spices, supported by grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long." (WA)

"(84% shiraz and 16% cabernet sauvignon): Inky purple. Lush blueberry and blackberry aromas show an enticing blend of depth and vivacity, with a suave incense nuance adding interest. Intense dark fruit liqueur flavors are supported by zesty acidity and show superb clarity for their power. Strikingly deep and sweet on the long, penetrating finish, which features velvety tannins and lingering blue fruit character." (VM)

"A sumptuous, generous and deeply flavoured red blend whose fragrance of violets and small red flowers, sweet red and black berries, fresh creamy cedary oak and nuances of blood plum overlie nuances of minerals and exotic spices. It’s smooth and polished, juicy and jammy, but presents a tightly controlled and measured palate whose jujube-like core of redcurrants, cassis and plums knits with fresh vanilla oak and a fine, firmish chalky spine. It finishes with mineral and savoury qualities and an ability to hold its alcoholic strength with relative ease." (JO)
