94pts Wine Enthusiast

This blend of old-vine Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is open and fragrant yet powerful and dense right from the get go. Concentrated damson plum and black currant are backed by notes of dark chocolate, licorice, eucalyptus and tomato leaf, with a sanguine nuance. The tannins are powerful and drying but hold the silky fruit neatly in place. Drink 2023–2035. Cellar Selection

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Keyneton Euphonium beautifully marries the mint and herb of the Bordeaux varieties with the plumminess and spice of the Shiraz. Hints of mint, tea and violets accent dark, plummy fruit, then finish with savory overtones of black olive. It's full-bodied and supple, ready to drink now or age 15 or more years.

91pts Wine Spectator

Complex and aromatic, this red offers black tea, dark chocolate, crushed pine needles and licorice-laced blackberry and plum flavors that are refined and polished, with velvety tannins and a touch of cocoa powder on the finish. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2031.

Winemaker Notes

Deep crimson with bright crimson hues. Intense aromas of ripe, spicy red currant, Satsuma plum, rhubarb, boysenberry and blackberry with lifted hints of cassis, violets, sage, bay leaf, black pepper, baking spices and cedar. The palate has excellent depth and structure with plush, ripe dark fruits and a balanced acid line driving the mid-palate long and finishing with savoury spice and dried herbs in unison with the elegant, fine-grained tannins.
