93 points James Suckling: "Blackberry and blueberry with graphite aromas follow through to a full body, round and velvety tannins and a polished finish. Compact and fine-grained. Drink now. Screw cap. (6/26/19)"

92 points Wine & Spirits: "[$20 list] The Osborn family has been growing grapes for more than 100 years, ever since John Osborn sold his collection of racehorses, including Footbolt, to buy their original vineyards. During the South Australia government-sponsored vine pull of the 1980s, d’Arry Osborn and his son, Chester, bought up a lot of old vineyards and continue to preserve them today. The Footbolt includes fruit from vines aged 20 to 100 years, traditionally fermented and blended into a supple, black-fruited wine of gentle power. Umami undertones of roasted meat and mushrooms warm the tannins, while the clean, rich fruit lasts. This will bring some sophistication to a cookout. (Feb 2020)"
