93 Points, James Suckling - Plenty of distinctive cabernet character, all black olive and cassis, dusty oak notes and a gently leafy undertone, some redder fruits too. The palate's assertive, taut and crunchy, this is an upbeat cabernet with attractive purity, oak rides in time with the fruit,
cassis and hints of chocolate. Acidity stretches the finish, tannins frame it straight and true.
91 Points, Wine Spectator - A perfumy note adds some grace to the juicy, minty blackberry and blueberry flavors, with a pleasantly chewy tannic backbone and plenty of licorice and Earl Grey tea accents. Lingers on the finish.
91 Points, Wine Advocate - Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Bin 407 opens with notes of menthol, eucalyptus, blackcurrant cordial and black cherry pie plus underlying cedar, toast and dark chocolate hints.
Full, generously fruited and wonderfully forward with firm tannins and lively acidity, it offers a beautiful expression of the best of South Australia Cabernet.
Bright garnet. Savory spices (paprika, curry leaf) with beetroot, blackcurrant
conserve and cassis varietal markers
regally ascend.Less noble yet endearing wafts of Mediterranean meat(s)-on-a-spit, and a suggestion of oak/char. Darkened
tarry and bitumen aromas abound. Tight, solid, assertive – handles oak well.Impressive mid-palate adorned with pronounced Cabernet tannins and a refreshing acidity. Reassuring flavors including black olive and pomegranate alongside a fanciful impression of carpaccio slivers of seared venison. A (powdery) sprinkling of cocoa powder, mocha, shaved bitter
chocolate and walnut husk adds further interest.
