"A wine I've come to look forward to trying each year, as the standard of recent releases has been consistently high.
The 2011 is no exception, with deep cherry and black fruit nose, cassis and purple florals, sweet oak adding interest and a thread of ripe, leafy regional character in the mix. the palate is brimming with lively fruit attack. There's cassis, anise and toasty, cedary oak here.
Impressive, chalky tannin texture, really packed with flavour, immensely fresh too. Superb once again."

Reviews:
“This strong performer has made the grade once more, with amazing fruit concentration and depth – really striking for the level of concentration and freshness it delivers. The nose has an abundance of rich dark-berry fruit, black cherries, cassis and ripe blood plums, cedary oak with vanillin and spice – very smart. The palate’s built on immense, mouth-filling tannins and perfectly struck ripeness, holding a long, roaring finish. Powerful but beautifully poised. Score 95"

Nick Stock, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald Good Wine Guide 2011

" I would have to say this is the most complete and the best cabernet Juniper has made and there have been some good'uns. Firm controlled palate with deep concentration of fruit. It's poised and supremely elegant with great length, structure and underlying power. Will cellar for many years. " 95/100 Cellar 12 Years.
Ray Jordan's 2011 WA Wine Guide

"Deep garnet, bright; a graceful and understated bouquet, revealing blackcurrant, lavender, violet and a touch of leafy complexity; the palate is full-bodied, but not full blooded, with restraint the order of the day; long, expansive and with a long future ahead." 95 points James Halliday
