Some dried herb flavours. As yet young and unevolved but with the potential for further improvement. Not the most subtle of wines but a pretty good one. --Gary Walsh

Super ripe super oaky and super concentrated this wine shows depth and power rich black fruits mocha and a completely unevolved personality; the inherent power is undeniable and on a cold night with a braised dish may be the perfect tonic.

A lush blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Shiraz this is full bodied and a bit jammy at this stage full of primary blueberry and blackberry fruit framed with cedary oak. The potent finish lingers suggesting the potential to cellar through 2020 if you have the patience to wait for a more complex integrated wine. If not just pop and pour for the upfront fruit.--Joe Czerwinski

Composed of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon and 38% Shiraz the 2008 FDR1A Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz displays a deep garnet-purple color and is very fruit-forward with intense black cherry and warm blackberry aromas plus whiffs of dried Mediterranean herbs and mint. Medium-bodied crisp and taut on the palate it gives firm grainy tannins just enough flesh and a long finish. Drinking now it should remain fresh to 2016+.--Lisa Perrotti-Brown
