95 Points – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, 2021
5 Red Star Winery – James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2021
Geoff Merrill Coonawarra Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
The aroma is wonderfully varietal, displaying tomato leaf, violet perfume, spice and blue fruits, with a touch of soy and menthol. The palate is well structured by firm grippy tannin filled out with generous fruit flavour and supple texture. Even with some time under its belt, the palate is still youthful with great acidity, tension and bright fruit flavours. Pair with rich glazed sauces and jus on slow cooked red meat or mushrooms. Beef stroganoff, beef bourguignon, beef short ribs or aged steak with a red wine sauce.
