International Wine Report: “The 2020 No Name Road Red Hills Lake Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fresh aromas of blackberries and red currants which are woven together with spices, florals, graphite and tobacco nuances. On the palate this is medium-bodied, round and seamless with notable balance all the way through the finish. This is accessible now, and should continue to drink nicely over the course of the next 2-5 years.”

James Suckling: “This is dark-fruited with blackberries, chocolates, dried herbs and dark spices. Hints of violets, too. Medium-bodied with supple tannins. Polished and silky with a fresh, fruity finish. Drink now.”
