Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts vinous/Josh Raynolds October 2017
Opaque ruby. Expansive cherry and cassis aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice, mocha and cracked pepper. Chewy and tightly focused on entry and then more broad and fleshy in the midpalate, offering concentrated dark fruit and spicecake flavors and a touch of vanilla. Closes on a sweet blueberry note, showing very strong persistence and just a hint of dusty tannins.
92 pts Wine Advocate Issue #225 June 2016
Still youthful and closed, the 2013 The Signature Cabernet Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color with notes of cassis, cedar, a touch of herbs and warm blackberries. The wine has a firm structure, while being grainy with a racy line going through it. It has great length and should age beautifully!
93 pts James Halliday
The alcohol may be modest, but that's where this line of enquiry ends. It's powerful, it wears a Driza-Bone and RM Williams boots, and isn't prepared to debate this characterisation at all. We could go down to the pub and, suitably fortified, settle things out the back.
94 pts Wine Enthusiast
A classic blend of Cabernet and Shiraz, this is cedary and complex upon opening, easily mixing cassis, plum and blackberry with vanilla and baking spices. On the palate, it's dense and concentrated yet slightly reserved, suggesting rather than screaming its potential. A long, mocha-tinged finish wraps things up, combining dusty tannins with mouthwatering acids. Drink 2020–2030+

Winemaker Notes

The colour of The Signature 2013 is almost impenetrable, this is a wine of aromatics and fineness with great depth of concentration. Showing dark red powdery currants and the leafy freshness of mint and cool spices, the aromatics are complex Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is all about Shiraz with dark plum, licorice and a potpourri of berry fruits, round, rich and complete with an ironstone depth of tannin, giving the support that will take this through the cellar for a very long time. Not to be opened for at least 5 years, but if you weaken, enjoy with a char grilled rump steak with all the extras.
