"It is sweetly fruited and fabulously fragrant on the nose showing blackberry, blueberry jam, vanilla, roasted nut and mixed spice characters, leading to a concentrated palate that is plump and fleshy. It is generous and flavoursome with plenty of delectable flavours, finishing long and satisfying. - Sam Kim."
"A blend of 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 23% Petit Verdot and 17% Merlot, the 2015 Shotfire Quartage offers up mint and cassis on the nose along with hints of classic tobacco and cigar box. It's full-bodied, with supple tannins and a velvety texture.- Joe Czerwinski"

"A long established blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot that has often exceeded expectations, both with the quality of the estate grown fruit, the way the components are handled in the winery and the blending process. Everything about the wine defies the normal yawn that greets Barossa Valley Bordeaux blends with its bright mouthfeel and cedary fruit flavours." - James Halliday’s Wine Companion (February 2018), 95 pts
"Plush and ripe, with a velvety background for the blackberry, plum and blueberry core. Chai tea, vanilla bean and candied ginger accents add a warm, smooth overtone, showing a long, generous finish. Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2030. 5,000 cases made. –MW" - Wine Spectator (December 2017), 91 pts
"(aged in new and used French oak for a year): Youthful purple. Expressive aromas of ripe blueberry, dark chocolate and incense, with a peppery nuance adding urgency. Densely packed but lively as well, with hints of lavender, mocha and black pepper complementing pliant black and blue fruit flavors. Closes with building sweetness, a touch of smokiness and even tannins that fold slowly into the wine's plush fruit. - Josh Raynolds - Vinous (March 2016), 90 pts
