"Cabernet Shiraz is the great Australian blend - wines with the flesh of Shiraz and the sturdy backbone of Cabernet Sauvignon, qualities that made the Penfolds 1962 Bin 60A the greatest Australian wine to date. Yalumba's Reserve is their pinnacle wine - the wine I like to call Yalumba Grange, made only from the best fruit and only when the vintage and winemaking are perfect. The 2001 vintage is only the 4th release of this great Australian wine and is an absolute cracker - dense, complex, perfectly balanced and with immaculate structure guaranteeing 20 years aging potential."
Robert Parker writes "96 Points - This stunning Shiraz is one of the greatest wines made in South Australia. Superb intensity, richness, body, and power. Smoky, truffle-like aromas intermixed with blackberries, cassis, burning embers, charcoal, and licorice soar from the glass of this opaque purple - colored, full-throttle, meaty, super-rich and concentrated wine. Superbly well-balanced, it is a candidate for 20-30 years of aging."
