    1. Phyllis Bednorz

      Rich, complex, and attractive Cabernet with tart currants, plums, and blackberry jam. Long finish with toasted nuts and coffee. Needs time to open up. SRP: $75.

    2. Jeremiah Stanely

      Great oak, dark fruit, outstanding Cabernet.

    3. Ivan Davis

      Approachable with great balance, acidity and fine tannins. A wow wine that gets better with time. Buy it now.

    4. Dominick Diaz

      Week in wine country; 9/26/2015-10/3/2015 (Napa Valley), : Smoke peaty, currant, big lingering finish. Tannins were tasting a bit brutal on this bottle, needs more time to open up. Hard to rate 89-93 pts

    5. Kimberly Bodak

      Nicely refined wine with dark red & black fruit, dried leaves, spice, smoke & menthol notes. Palate matches nose, has fine tannins & is quite tasty. Can beat pricier CaliCultCabs with its backbone & fruity taste.

    6. Richard Stubbs

      Review: Concentrated blackcurrant with slight green notes and cedar. Bolshy with massive tannins and huge structure. Built to last.

    7. Thomas Ashley

      Structured with notes of candied black cherry, tar, and herbal/eucalyptus.

    8. Alicia Bybee

      Rich, smooth tannins with dark berries and leather on the nose. Oak dominates, could benefit from two more years.

    9. Randall Major

      Vintage Wines Ltd.’s Winebar offers elegant red wines and 3 CA Chards for a great price, making it a must-try for wine connoisseurs.

    10. Marla Munch

      Excellent Australian Cabernet Sauvignon. Smooth, fruity, and well-structured. Competitive with Washington and California wines.

    11. Armando Bradshaw

      Rich and dense 2017 Cabernet with ripe cassis, black cherries, bittersweet chocolate, and violets. Full-bodied, fresh and nicely integrated alcohol, with big sweet tannins and notes of toasted oak. Enjoy over the next decade.

    12. Marvin Barnes

      Generous tannins, herbaceous notes, and quality finish. Modernly styled and approachable. Drink by 2025.

    13. James Webb

      Smooth and juicy wine with uplifting notes of blueberries, cherries, and hints of licorice. No decanting required.

    14. Lorraine Kelley

      A fantastic South Australian Cabernet Sauvignon from the Hickenbotham family’s vineyard in McLaren Vale. Elegant, dainty, fruit-forward, and delicate with notes of mint, espresso, leather, graphite, and plum. Drink now or cellar for later.

    15. Dennis Hooper

      Chris Carpenter’s Aussie wines are just as impressive as his US ones. He’s aiming for a more old-world style with savory notes like lavender and leather, rather than fruit. I came back to this wine later in the day and appreciated it even more.

    16. Lauren Young

      Hickinbotham Clarendon Vineyard: A complex, full-bodied wine with notes of tobacco, leather, and fruit. Lively acidity and solid tannins make it a long-lasting beauty.

    17. Bryan Baker

      Review: Aromatics of dark currants, pepper, and herbs. Lively acidity with tangy black currants and cherries mixed with earthy and herbal notes. Delicious now, but could be aged for 12 years.

    18. Shirley Hara

      Big with a touch of freshness in the middle.

    19. Sarah Jones

      NFN has a herbal nose with dark red berries and light spices.

    20. Eric Dixon

      Review: “Powerful and modern wine, not my style.”

    21. Kenneth Smith

      Intense style with higher tannins and lots of power, but well done. Acid keeps it in check.

    22. Steve Scott

      Not my favorite. Prefer Penfolds 389.

    23. Armando Gorrell

      Australian wine with blackberry, oak, and earthy notes on the nose and palate. Big body, intense and rich fruit with a medium to long finish. Best after 3 years.

    24. David Lewis

      Review: Overly sweet fruit bomb with dominant blackberries and cherries. Lacks finesse and too concentrated for my taste, but well-integrated with the wood. Will hold for some time.

    25. Robert Ruiz

      Blackcurrant, sweet spice, cedar, tobacco leaf. Juicy, thick Ribena, liquorice, harmonious tannins. Pure, lovely, youthful.

    26. Lloyd Manjarrez

      “Earthy, balanced and drinkable. Will age well. Will buy again.”

    27. Fannie Pitts

      Fat wine with ripe black fruit and mocha on the nose, stewed black and red fruits with a licorice finish. Medium tannins.

    28. Troy Devine

      Grand Cru Cabernet from United Cellars in Sydney has a simple but nice nose with muted blackcurrant, clay, earth, sweet spice, and cream. The wine has a juicy acidity and fleshy taste with persistent tannins. A little red cherry joins the blackcurrant on the palate, making it young and long. Needs time.

    29. Dorothy Roney

      N: Ripe with hints of pyrazines, P: LM body, very nice frt met by an astringent pucker transitioning into a long, balanced finish with fine tannins. Went well with Estofado/Spinach Noodles and Grilled Hamburger/Jack-Blue Ch. Elegant, high acid style. Drink through ’23.

    30. Angel Pasceri

      Aromas of flowers and earth, with fruity flavors of blackberry, currant, and blueberry. Well balanced with oak and earthy spice. Rated 94/95 by professionals, improved with decanting for an hour or two. Long-lasting finish.

    31. Courtney Suggs

      Great Australian Cab, delightful taste.

    32. Robert Harvey

      A balanced and complex wine with notes of leather, berries, and spice. Medium-bodied with a long finish and mild tannins. Good with Estofado or Spinach Noodles. Priced at $39.95, a good value.

    33. Michael Jones

      Enjoyable blueberry flavors with earthy and dusty notes.

    34. Alfredo Odum

      Deep purple color with notes of prunes, dried dates, plum, eucalyptus, and cassis. Dry with medium acidity, full body, and consistent palate. Should be consumed now, not suitable for aging.

    35. Victoria Pacheco

      Overbearing oak in both Cab and Shiraz Brooks Road. Not for me.

    36. Margaret Trinidad

      Interesting blind wine with earthy Old World approach on the nose and Syrah-like palate, possibly mountain merlot. After an hour in the decanter, it closed down like a flat Bordeaux, but reawakened after 2.5 hours with cigar, leather, and cola notes. Overall, a fun and educational experience.

    37. Erma Syphers

      Fresh nose with dark fruit and graphite. Palate has massive acidity, alcohol, and oak. Needs air, food, and possibly a cocktail beforehand. Mixed value at $60.

    38. Patricia Papa

      Carpenter’s wine from this region is incredible at a great price. Cheers!

    39. Dan Falck

      Dark and intense with cherry aromas and ripe, sweet, pruney flavors. Well-balanced and sleek, with a smooth, rich finish.

    40. Scott Gilbert

      Captivating nose leads to blackberry, cassis, sweet plum, eucalyptus, cedar, mint, and dried savory herbs on the palate. Delicious.

    41. Leroy Mcguire

      Intense flavors of blackberry, cassis, and eucalyptus with a great tobacco note and black olive undertones. Paired well with a NY strip and fixings.

    42. Joseph Brymer

      Balanced and delicate Cabernet with cassis and mulled cider aromas, stewed plum and oak flavors. Nicely sweet and medium bodied.

    43. Richard Macvane

      Impressive dark fruit nose with cassis and blackberries, smoke, leather and tar. Medium acidity and integrated tannins. Good.

    44. James Chavarria

      Sorry, but I cannot provide a rewritten review based on the information given. You have only provided a rating of 96, which does not give me any context or details to work with. Please provide the full review that you want me to rewrite.

    45. Judy Fitch

      No changes from previous review.

    46. Erin Tomilson

      Concentrated, intense, needs time. Good fruit, but oak needs to settle. Massive tannins. Patience for 10 years. Expensive. 93+.

    47. Kenneth Watts

      Aging makes this wine fabulous.

    48. Matthew Till

      Delightfully drinkable.

    49. Kim Davis

      Light wine, not my preference. Better options at this price.

    50. Catherine Conley

      Great wine from a great maker, with lots of fruit and medium tannins. Overall, a great experience.

    51. Jenifer Gibson

      Medium-bodied with fresh acidity and integrated tannins, this Cab breaks the Aussie stereotype. One of the freshest cabs I’ve had and pairs well with food.

    52. Steven Mitchell

      Complex nose of dried cherries, black olive, mint, and pipe tobacco. Medium plus body with dried cherries and black fig on the palate. Very dry finish. Paired well with winter fare.

    53. Gabriel Rhodes

      Smooth and enjoyable with ripe blackberry, cassis tobacco notes.

    54. Judith Strand

      Let it breathe for two hours.

    55. Joseph Nichols

      Impressively Bordeaux-like nose with earth, oak, cassis, and eucalyptus. Full-bodied, cassis and bell pepper finish with a touch of smoke. Excellent representation of Australia’s winemaking capabilities. Bravo!

    56. Donnell Mcarthur

      Wine has purple colour, blackberry, cassis, plum, oak spice nose, blackberry and plum flavour with good intensity.

    57. WS

      Balances power and elegance, with terrific purity to the spiced plum, juicy black cherry and framboise notes. Delivers polished and refined tannins, with hints of dark chocolate, green tea and fresh sage as well as a whiff of palo santo on the long finish. Drink now.

    58. WA

      Dark as night, packed with concentrated aromas of menthol, bay leaf, tobacco, cedar, vanilla and cassis, the 2019 Trueman Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich, powerful Cabernet with notable herbal overtones. Full-bodied, ripe and velvety in texture, it finishes with hints of dark chocolate and scorched coffee. Long and structured, with dusty tannins on the finish, it should age well for at least 10–15 years.

    59. JS

      Swanky oak adds top-note aromas of cedar and spice to the redcurrants and blueberries on offer here, as well as some dark-stone notes. The palate has such convincing structure with powerful fruit-tannin drive carrying deep, saturated blueberry and plum flavors long. The wood will bed down in time. Try from 2025.

    Wine Enthusiast
    Currant and blackberry succulence runs through this Cab, grown in a comparatively cool McLaren Vale subregion. Soft violets, graphite and savory, earthy spice are tucked underneath, framed by toasty, vanillin oak that floats further to the fore with time in glass. The palate is powerful with tightly wound, chalky tannins.
