"Inky ruby. Spicy and expansive on the nose, displaying intense black currant, cherry compote and smoky mineral scents as well as hints of vanilla and pipe tobacco. Warm and seamless on the palate, offering pliant red and dark berry and mocha flavors and a touch of candied licorice. The spice and smoke notes repeat strongly on a long, supple finish framed by dusty, slow-building tannins."
"Opaque ruby. Vibrant dark berry, floral pastille, incense and smoky mineral aromas show very good clarity and spicy lift. Juicy black and blue fruit and spicecake flavors expand and put on weight with air while maintaining vivacity. Smoothly blends power and finesse and finishes very long and sweet, delivering strong, spicy thrust and silky tannins that come in late."
"The wine emulates Bordeaux in more than name, being medium-bodied and a bit austere. It's firm and linear in construction, blending mint and black currant flavors into a crisp, tightly wound Cabernet." (Cellar Selection)
“Pretty aromas of blueberries and raspberries adorn the nose, leading into a palate of mixed berries and chocolate. This wine, which is in the medium- to full-bodied category, has a silky mouthfeel, ending in a fine dusting of cocoa powder.”
"At 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a firm, cassis-scented wine, but one that includes hints of ripeness and generous fruit. Dried herbs and brown sugar add nuance, while the velvety finish picks up some meaty, savory notes." (Editors' Choice)
"The staple of the Wirra Wirra stable, this has a definitive cabernet stamp to it with liquorice and dark chocolate. Plum fruits, cassis and black cherry flavors linger on elegant tannins. Nicely cut wine and cleverly blended."
"A 50/37/13% blend matured for 18 months in French (70%) and American (30%) oak (20% new), one of Wirra Wirra's celebrated foot soldiers. This really does over-deliver; while it's chock-full of luscious red and black fruits (more on the red side) it has good shape and texture, the finish very more-ish. Value+."
"Medium to deep garnet/purple, the 2013 Shiraz RSW has tons of blackberry and spiced plum notes with menthol, spice box, cedar, vanilla and mocha hints. The densely packed palate is full and rich, shows good concentration and is structured by firm, grainy tannins and a long finish."
"Medium to deep garnet/purple, the 2013 The Angelus Cabernet Sauvignon (The Dead Ringer) has intense eucalyptus, creme de cassis and blueberry compote notes with hints of dark chocolate, cedar box, dried herbs and black earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is densely packed and fruity with firm, fine-grained tannins and a long finish."
