"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
"I tasted the 2016 William Randell Cabernet Sauvignon as a final blend, one month before bottling. Mint and cassis mark the nose, followed by a full-bodied, ripe wine that seemed creamy-textured and soft. For a Cabernet Sauvignon, it's awfully plush and easy to drink. - Joe Czerwinski" - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #238, August 31st 2018), 90-93 pts
"(aged in new and used large French oak barrels) Inky ruby. Expressive, oak-accented dark berry, licorice and pipe tobacco aromas are complemented by vanilla and rose pastille qualities. Intense black currant and bitter cherry flavors show impressive depth and a smooth, supple personality. Clings with strong tenacity on the youthfully tannic finish, which leaves behind peppery spice and dark chocolate notes. - Josh Raynolds" - Vinous (Australia Brings the Brawn and the Beauty, October 2017), 92 pts
