"Red currants, cranberry, and dried Italian herbs on the nose. The palate features red, blue, and black fruits melded with sweet spiced cinnamon, vanilla chai, and cedar oak. Fine silky tannins add savory balance and length to the palate."
"Light and distinctive with spicy cherry and anise flavors, which echo nicely on a soft finish. Pair with rich full flavored pasta, grilled beef or chicken dishes."
"91 Pts. Wine Spectator The 2011 vintage of Bella's Garden features a dark, almost black color with aromas of lovely red fruits including subtle raspberries, five spice, cedar and sandlewood. Juicy red fruits burst onto the palate and roll on and on, balanced with fine tannins and subtle oak. This wine has great length and an elegant framework."
"97 Rating! Antonio Galloni Black core, deep red rim. Leaping out of the glass, this wines aromas are vibrant and inviting. It is full of mocha, spice, subtle vanilla and kirsch with dark chocolate, black olives and satsuma plums. Juicy, yet tight from the get go with plenty of life through the palate. Full of plums, spice, subtle black olives and chocolate with long fine tannins."
"Ripe and pure mixed berry fruit, spice, beautiful creamy vanilla oak laid on thick, a musky perfume - aromatically highly appealing. It's full bodied with a flood of smooth flavour and creamy silky tannin that spreads out on the finish, becoming more open weave and prominent. Additional flavours of Barossa coal, meat and soy, but it's the seductive choc-berry fruit and oak flavours that carry the day. Delicious. Exemplary modern day Barossa Shiraz."
"This Shiraz fills the glass with berry and vanilla oak aromas. Subdued earthy tones with soft ripe sweetness are displayed in perfect harmony with fine tannins."
"Barefoot Shiraz is perfect for a large gathering or just for sipping alongside your favorite homemade meal. Deep breaths of lavender cut in front of dark berry and mocha flavors with a smooth-as-velvet vanilla finish. It really is love at first sip."
"93 Rating! Kahn's Staff. Deep garnet: there is a sappy complexity to the bouquet that is beguiling, with ripe red fruits, well-handled oak, and a hint of jasmine; the palate reveals more toasty oak notes, with fine-grained tannins and velvety texture a feature of the long finish: an elegant expression of the region."
"This medium-bodied wine has an inviting berry aroma and a soft, pleasing texture. Oliver's Shiraz is friendly and approachable wine plus loaded with soft lush fruit and supple tannins."
"Bright ruby/crimson. Nose: Bramble and stewed plum aromas are supported by subtle touches of spice and vanilla. Complex and inviting! Palate: A medium to full bodied palate with layers of red berry and bramble fruit complimented by hints of dark chocolate. The finish is long and supple and shows nice creamy, spiced touches from the oak maturation."
