"Inky ruby. Aromas of dried cherry, cassis and licorice, along with a peppery element in the background. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and dark berry flavors and a jolt of cracked pepper that adds spicy cut. Closes with firming tannins, a late touch of vanilla and good, spicy persistence."
"Slightly herbal, with distinct thyme and rosemary notes accenting black cherries and cassis. There’s some vanilla, too, along with an attractive, silky-but-firm texture and a long, softly dusty finish." (Editor's Choice)
"A round and supple raspberry-scented shiraz, this combines lighter notes of spice and fruit zest with darker edges of tarry tannins. It’s a little reduced, needing a splash in a decanter to serve with grilled lamb."
"Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the Earthworks 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon shows flavors of ripe red and black currants, cedar, dried herbs, cloves and This Cabernet is medium-bodied and chewy, while still being fresh and lively. There is nice structure, ripe tannin, good length and an herbal lift on the palate."
