3 stars "Color: dark; Nose: fragrant; Aromas: buttery; Acidity: crisp; Body: tannic; Finish: medium; Overall: rich; Harsh at beginning. Smooth aftertaste. Mediocre, but not fantastic. Worth the price, and would recommend to someone with a better pallete probably."

91 points "Wine Advocate Review The Cabernet and Shiraz blends begin with the 2006 Shiraz (70%) Cabernet Sauvignon (22%) Koonunga Hill. Purple-colored, the wine offers meaty black currant, blackberry, and blueberry aromas. On the palate the wine exhibits remarkable focus and structure for its humble price. The fruit is grapy and primary as well as intensely flavored. It should evolve for several years and drink well through 2022 if not longer. It is a fantastic value. Wine Tasting Notes Deep red. The nose shows notes of sweet dark plum fruits, red berries and white fruit cake aromatics. Complex spice and pepper aromas arise almost instantly upon the initial pour. There is a mocha/ coffee and vanilla lift stemming from the balanced well integrated use of seasoned oak. The palate is bright and substantial. This wine has a medium bodied, solid structure with generous dark chocolate and berried flavors and obvious, grainy tannins. The fleshy, sweet core of fruit and flavor seemingly effortlessly facilitates impressive length. " Best 2008-2022
