This year, it's close to 40% each from Coonawarra and McLaren Vale, with smaller proportions from Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills. It's full-bodied and rich, with a velvety mouthfeel, great intensity and super length. Yes, it's embryonic, but it's not unapproachable, much like any other high-quality New World Cabernet these days, with the ability to age for two decades or more. - Joe Czerwinski

Brought up all in new American oak, this brilliant effort is another tour de force from this producer that has massive notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil, vanilla bean, white chocolate, and hints of mint all soaring from the glass. Inky colored, full-bodied, and with a flamboyant, opulent mouthfeel, it opens up beautifully with time in the glass and didn’t show a hint of oxidation or tiredness during the three days I followed the bottle. Aussi Cabernet Sauvignon, or Cabernet Sauvignon for that matter, doesn’t get much better. Drink this magical effort anytime over the coming 2-3 decades.

The scents of Indian ink and vivid, new American oak take center stage, followed by redcurrant, blackcurrant and meaty aromas, as well as a sanguine, iodine edge.

The palate confirms the sense that this needs a good rest. Deep and dense, the attractively chewy tannins are draped in rich, ripe blackberry and blackcurrant flavors. This is a vibrant wine, with significant tannin layering that needs to rest a little. Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills fruit sourcing. 20 months in new American-oak hogsheads. Try from 2024. Should peak after 2030.

Distinctive and rich, this shows off flashy vanilla, milk chocolate and cream soda notes up front, but then sinks into a groove of plump blackberry and black cherry flavors, revealing dashes of black pepper and cigar box...   Distinctive and rich, this shows off flashy vanilla, milk chocolate and cream soda notes up front, but then sinks into a groove of plump blackberry and black cherry flavors, revealing dashes of black pepper and cigar box. The tannins are dense yet polished. Presents plenty of harmony on the finish, with a vanilla bean hint weaving in and out. Drink now through 2039. — M .W.

Matured as ever in 100% new American oak, this classic Penfolds Cabernet hails from Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills, with a component of the famous old vine Block 42 for pedigree. It’s...   Matured as ever in 100% new American oak, this classic Penfolds Cabernet hails from Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills, with a component of the famous old vine Block 42 for pedigree. It’s typically rich and smoky on the nose, with a lovely dense texture and spiciness on the palate, spliced with chocolatey and crème de cassis richness and underpinned by an iron fist of as yet muscular, tight tannins which suggest serious potential for ageing. This wine could only be Australian, but that’s no bad thing. Drink with a retro roast duck à l’orange.

The nose is a heady combo of lifted red currant, red licorice, flowers, mocha and mint. It's also a touch meaty and the oak spice—from 20 months in new American oak barrels—is also apparent.

It's also a touch meaty and the oak spice—from 20 months in new American oak barrels—is also apparent. The palate is big but poised and lifted by tangy, curranty fruit and a velvety, almost creamy texture. It is currently tightly wound by fine-grained, herb-tinged tannins and should cellar through 2039.
