John Lewis, Newcastle Herald, August 2015
HereÆs great value from the family wine venture established in the southern Clare Valley in 1969 by Sydney hotelier Bill Taylor Senior and his sons, John and Bill. The wine is bright crimson, has 13.5 per cent alcohol and displays potpourri aromas. Juicy mulberry flavour comes through on the front of the palate and rhubarb, licorice and cloves fruit characters meld with coconutty oak on the middle palate. Minty tannins hold sway at the finish. It is available on taylorswines.com.au and in bottle shops. The TaylorsÆ operation in Auburn, began with 162 hectares of red vines in what was then the largest cabernet sauvignon planting in the southern hemisphere. The family had a great liking for Clare Valley wines and for 20 years they bought large quantities of it, largely from the long-gone Clarevale Co-operative, for their liquor stores. Since 1970 the Taylors have been successfully diversifying into whites.

Taylors Promised Land Merlot 2014
Plummy depths with chocolate hints - thereÆs a little vanilla accented oak in the mix too. So far, so good. Soft, smooth, plush and easy going. ThereÆs spice, particularly pepper, tannin is a little gruff but does give substance. Plenty of black fruit on offer, tannin gives a little extra grunt. Goes well - particularly at the price point, if not the most profound wine.
