The Brands Laira Old Station Cabernet Shiraz has a rich palate and great depth and intensity of flavour, with pure blackberry, cassis and raspberry fruits complemented by lovely notes of cedar and mocha oak.
92 points, Special Value Punches above its weight from its terrific colour to the depth of flavour – not too much, just right. A mix of cassis and plums, spice, eucalypt and curry leaves with cedary oak floating around. Tannins are ripe with some firmness. It’ll last some distance.”
