Wynns John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 750ml, South Australia
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95+ pts - Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon has pronounced black currant, black cherry and cedar notes with nuances of lightly browned toast, roses, game and rosemary. Medium-bodied, the palate is already a joy to drink, though this wine is showing only a fraction of its potential. Elegantly fruited and tightly wound, it has a firm level of fine-grained tannins and a refreshing acid backbone. It finishes with laudable persistence. Drink it from 2014 to 2026+. - Feb 2013
James Halliday's Wine Companion - 98 pts -This is a top-notch Riddoch cabernet. The colour is a given, as are the depth and purity of the varietal expression, but despite its moderate alcohol, it is full-bodied, and really should be left for 10 years, then enjoyed over the next 20-30 years, its future guaranteed by its screwcap. Date tasted 1 Sep 2013. Drink by 2050.
Wine Spectator - 93 pts - Layers of bay leaf and dried herb flavors weave through a focused core of juicy currant fruit, melding smoothly and ramping up intensity on the finish. Best from 2015 through 2020. 75 cases imported. -HS Jun 15 2014.
