2011 Thorn-Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot - 87 PTS - WA

"The 2011 Terra Barossa Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot (69%, 21% and 10% respectively) exhibits notes of tobacco leaf, cedarwood, melted chocolate, black currants and vanillin. Medium-bodied, round, juicy and low in acidity, it is a bistro/hamburger/pizza wine that is best drunk in its first several years of life."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #208, August 2013), 87 pts

2012 Thorn-Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot - 89 PTS - WA

wa89"This is one of my go-to wineries for top values from the Barossa Valley in Australia. The Thorn family has been growing grapes since the 1870s, and the quality of these wines is impressive. Moreover, the prices are almost ridiculously low, making these wines frequent entries in The Wine Advocate. All of the following wines are produced from 100% Barossa Valley fruit from what they call the Kabininge Vineyard. The 2012 Terra Barossa Proprietary Red, a blend of 69% Shiraz, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot aged 12 months in a combination of French and American oak, is a wine that over-delivers. Its deep purple color is followed by notes of blueberries, licorice, camphor, chocolate and a background hint of espresso. This is a big, chewy, rich, fruit-bomb with enough oak to provide additional character. Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years. - Robert Parker"

2013 Thorn-Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"(aged for a year in new and used French and American oak barrels): Bright violet color. Smoke-accented cassis, cherry and potpourri aromas are complicated by hints of cola and peppery spices. Sweet and expansive in the mouth, offering lively dark berry and licorice pastille flavors and a bracing jolt of cracked pepper. This energetic wine finishes with silky tannins and echoes of fresh boysenberry and plum. - Josh Raynolds"

vinous logo 250"Brilliant violet. Aromas and flavors of cassis, cherry pit, dark chocolate and candied flowers, given spicy lift by a peppery nuance. Juicy and focused on the palate; a pungent herbal element builds as the wine opens up. Finishes on a spicy note, with good tenacity and dusty tannins lending shape and grip. - Josh Raynolds"

2016 Thorn-Clarke Terra Barossa Shiraz Cabernet Petit Verdot - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Lurid violet. Cassis, bitter cherry and cola aromas are energized by a peppery nuance. Primary black and blue fruit flavors open up slowly with air while developing a suggestion of succulent herbs. Clings nicely on a tangy, youthfully tannic finish that shows good nerve and cut. - Josh Raynolds"
