The Wine Front, 94 points, August 2013

Now we are cooking. Sagrantino is a fabulous variety and Oliver's Taranga in McLaren Vale is making some big strides with it.

Dark berries, rigid backbone of tannin, flush with fruit through the finish. Power and glory. Toasty oak completes the picture of power. Sweet-sour elements. Not one for those who don't enjoy a bit of grip in their wine. Very impressive. And it will age.
