93 points Wine Spectator: "[$72 list] There's a distinctive overtone of black walnut here, adding a note of maturity and complexity to the core of wild strawberry and raspberry flavors, with aromatic details of dried porcino, green tea and spice box. The tannins are taut, firming on the finish and suggesting that time in the cellar will make this even more expressive. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2035. 300 cases imported. (4/30/19)"

93 points Decanter: "Valentine’s day delivered over five inches of rain and, with a spring frost, scythed yields. Seamless tannins and a great saturation of sweet blood plum and inky black and blue fruits make for a lingering finish, with a kiss of five spice and graphite joined by an attractive hint of green. This unusually elegant Barossa Shiraz Cabernet Merlot blend spent 18 months in French and American oak hogsheads, 15% new. Drinking Window: 2018-2028. (Jul 2018)"

92 points Joe Czerwinski (Wine Advocate): "Predominantly Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon (there's some Merlot and Cabernet Franc as well), the 2014 Keyneton Euphonium is leafy and fresh, with raspberry and cassis fruit dusted with dried herbs and spices. It's medium-bodied but ripe and creamy-textured on the palate, showing great balance between intensity and detail, then slowly fading on the long, slightly dusty finish. Drink: 2018-2030. (Aug 2018)"

92 points James Suckling: "This has cooler accents with red and dark berries along with a leafy, herbal and earthy edge. The palate is smooth and plump with plenty of blackberries, dark cherries and blueberries. A ripe finish. A blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink or hold. Screw cap. (8/14/18)"

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$72 list] This blend consists mostly of Shiraz and Cabernet with a little Merlot and Cabernet Franc. A potpourri bowl of drying red fruits, herbs, pipe tobacco, licorice and warm earth make up the characters on both the nose and the palate. There's a firm grip of chalky tannins and a raspberry leaf tea finish. Drink now with rare steak and mushrooms, or cellar until 2024. Alcohol 14%. (Aug 2019)"
