Wine Spectator | Rating: 89Ripe and generous, not a big wine but nicely packed with blueberry and currant fruit, layered with spicy oak and a cedary touch on the fine-grained finish. 2,500 cases made.Author: Harvey Steiman
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon S2, from relatively young vines (1,500 cases produced; 100% Cabernet Sauvignon), exhibits elegance as well as structure, characteristics of this vintage in South Australia. Notes of cedar, spice box, licorice, red currants, sweet black fruits, and toasty oak are found in this plump, rich, graceful, well-delineated Cabernet. Aged in a combination of both new and old French and American oak for 13 months, it should drink well for 5-8 years.Author: Robert Parker
Self | Rating:Black fruit , berries, and spice on the nose. The fruit has faded a bit but surprisingly opens up after about an hour. balanced with soft tannins and a moderately long finish.Drink Dates: 2010-2012Author: geoffkap

South Australia is too large and diverse to generalize about climate or topography, with both cooler coastal areas and warmer inland sections—but rainfall is generally low throughout and drought is a constant concern.
