Wine News & Reviews

2010 Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Barossa - 91 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 91 Pts."Another winner and sensational, the 2010 Shotfire Cabernet Sauvignon-Shiraz is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Shiraz. A whopper of a wine, it is deep ruby/purple and possesses loads of glycerin and full body along with stunning notes of wood spice, graphite, blackberry and pepper. Rich, chewy, and dense, in a typically bold, exuberant Aussie style, this is a wine to drink over the next 6-10 years."

2011 Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Barossa - 87 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 87 Pts."The 2011 Shotfire Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz (76% and 24% respectively) is a soft, velvety-textured effort displaying lots of peppery, meaty, bouquet garni notes interspersed with black currant and blackberry fruit. Round and succulent with low acidity and ripe tannin, it can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years."

2013 Thorn-Clarke Shotfire Cabernet Sauvignon / Shiraz - 90 PTS - VINOUS

"vinous logo 250(aged in a combination of new and used French and American oak for 18 months): Bright violet color. A smoke-tinged bouquet evokes redcurrant, dried cherry, pipe tobacco and succulent herbs. Seamless and gently sweet, offering red berry compote, rose pastille and bitter chocolate flavors. Finishes long and gently tannic, with clinging sweetness and an echo of smokiness. - Josh Raynolds"
