World Wine

Cedar, licorice, baking spice, dark berries, tobacco and a musky perfume. Medium to full bodied with supple creamy tannin, sweet dark fruit and toasty savoury oak.

Score: 92. November 2011.

Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, 2009 FDR 1A Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz presents an earthy / meaty / savory character with notes of game, soy, damp loam and yeast extract over a core of black cherries and blackberries with touches of white pepper, Mediterranean herbs and cloves. Concentrated and taut in the mouth, it offers a solid backbone of medium to firm level grainy tannins and crisp acidity, finishing long and savory. It should drink best 2013 to 2019+.

Score: 90+. —Lisa Perrotti-Brown, February 2012.
