2017 Taltarni Pyrenees Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Pyrenees VIC
Robert Heywood says: "Aromas of earth and dusty tones are underpinned by tomato leaf and blackcurrant. Complemented by a balanced palate of blueberry and cigar box, which leads to dark chocolate flavours, and a round and velvety finish."

2016 Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre Cabernet Sauvignon, Margaret River WA
Clive Otto says: "Lovely aromatics of cherry pie, boysenberry, blackcurrant, violets and brand-new leather. There is a jubeyness with fleshy boysenberry and dark cherries, but also a dry finish, too. Many layers of flavour, but also words like elegance, finesse, and complexity are evoked when tasting this wine."
