"Curranty fruit with tips of raspberried sweetness. Dusty tannin. Oak plays a minor role at most, though there's a gentle creaminess. No alarms or surprises and decent heft."

"From Carl Lindner's vineyard. The kindest thing that can be said about most Barossa Valley cabernet is that it is a peculiarly Australian style, especially when American oak is allowed anywhere near it (I think it is wholly or partially French in this instance)."

"Sister's Run must have been delighted and surprised with the Blue-Gold (double gold) the wine received at the Sydney International Wine Competition '13. It is elegant, and the wet, cool vintage had a silver lining for Barossa Valley cabernet, giving fragrance and varietal expression at lower alcohol levels than normal; the supple mouthfeel of this wine is one of its best features."

    Vintage 2010

    • James Halliday Wine Companion - 93 Points
    "Good hue of modest depth; the fragrant cassis-accented bouquet is a bright start, and the finely structured, juicy red and black fruits of the medium-bodied palate are most appealing. Seriously good value."
