  • Promised Land Shiraz Cabernet 201488/100

    Bob Johnson, WinelinesOnline, December 2015


    Aussie bottlings of Shiraz often are described as 'fruit bombs."" Down Under Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be soft and restrained. When you put the two varieties together, it's pure blended bliss - showcasing delicious plum, blackberry and red raspberry flavours, accented by black pepper spice. This value-priced Shiraz Cabernet is a delicious sipping wine, or an ideal pairing partner for burgers or pepperoni pizza.

    Promised Land Shiraz Cabernet 201487/100

    Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2016

    Australia Rediscovers its Mojo
    Deep ruby. Smoky cherry and cassis scents and flavors, with a peppery element adding lift. Soft and round on the palate but missing structure. Finishes broad and gently sweet, repeating the cassis note.

    Aromas of blackberry jam, plum, violets, and spice. Soft and round in the mouth with black fruit, hints of smoke, and chocolate on the palate. Dark cherry notes on the long finish.

  • Promised Land Shiraz Cabernet 201487/100

    James Halliday, Wine Companion, April 2017


    Perhaps the most appealing of the reds from the '14 Promised Land releases. Lifted aromas of ripe blackberry with a touch of liquorice and spice on the bouquet, and the palate lively, fresh-fruited and generous.
