"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 Shiraz (aged 12 months in American oak) exhibits lots of toasty oak, sweet blackberry fruit, licorice, tar and a subtle hint of herbs in the background. Medium-bodied, soft, and round, it can be drunk over the next several years. - Robert Parker"
