"From the cool Milton Park and St Kitts Vineyards, destemmed, open-fermented, 10 days on skins, matured for 16 months in French hogsheads (35% new). The vintage was made to measure for cabernet in this district, the wine revelling in its full-bodied guise. Blackcurrant, black olive, dark chocolate and cedar sweep you along – relax and enjoy it." - Halliday Wine Companion (August 2020), 96 pts
"From the relatively cool climes of Eden Valley, this Cab leads with ripe red and black fruits, oak and earthy spices. The palate is powerful but not rich, gripped vice-like by muscular, slightly astringent tannins and crunchy red-berry fruit. The oak is out in full force here but this currently austere wine should continue to age until at least 2025. - CHRISTINA PICKARD"
"Elegant and polished, with a distinctive floral overtone to the plum and kirsch flavors. Lush and rich, this shows off details of dark chocolate, black licorice and baking spices, finishing with a thread of cedar and firming tannins. Drink now through 2035. 275 cases made, 50 cases imported. - MaryAnn WOROBIEC" - Wine Spectator (April 30th 2020), 90 pts
"A dark ruby red in the glass, the wine has a lovely nose of dark fruit and minty hints. On the palate, it possesses robust dark fruit, with good tannins, and finishes with great balance." - Beverage Dynamics (August 2019), 95 pts
"Open-fermented in small fermenters, each treated separately and matured in French oak (40% new) for an average of 18 months. The best barrels went to make this wine, its fragrant bouquet opening proceedings. The medium to full-bodied palate rides on typical cabernet tannins that lengthen the palate and its core of blackcurrant fruit. - James Halliday"
"The 2015 William Randell Cabernet Sauvignon is a single-vineyard, Eden Valley bottling with plenty of intensity and varietal character. Mint and cassis notes dominate, but there's a healthy portion of new French oak that shows as well, adding lovely notes of baking spices and vanilla. Full-bodied and velvety in texture, it still shows enough delineation and length to please purists. - Joe Czerwinski" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #238, August 31st 2018), 93 pts
