    January 20, 2019 - Still youthfull and bright, this is very a easy drinking cabernet with lots of juicy berries and very fine tannin that keeps you coming back for more. Likely to improve even further as the chocolate comes up and acid settles. Light on its feet but not lacking in flavor. 92.

    September 26, 2018 - The Margaret River is in many ways the place in Australia where the wines are the most like Bordeaux. Ocean cooled, lively, brightly acidic, strongly structured, with many of the best sites featuring gravelly ridges. One significant advantage is that Margaret River is spared the problems of excessive rain and mold and mildew that sometimes plague Bordeaux vintages. The 6 year old Hay Shed Hill shows classic Cabernet flavors of delicious blackberry and black currant, buoyant acidity and tannin, and the ability to age and improve, all achieved with much better affordability than Bordeaux.

    October 5, 2017 - Margaret River is highly suited to Cabernet, and this one provides a good value example. Bright and fresh blackcurrant and redcurrant, fine tannin. Delicious now with food and should be good over the next 5 years too.

    Lush Mulberry and cassis fruit, cedar oak and well integrated smooth tannins.. Medium plus bodied with medium plus finish..

    Will provide great drinking over the next 5 years..

    July 23, 2016 - This Hay Shed Hill wine shows all the advantages of Margaret River compared to the rest of Australia, including being less subject to variable weather, especially the lack of drought and excessive heat, because it is ocean moderated and cooled on the southern and western sides, while being still warm enough to fully ripen grapes that need a longer growing season. The big red wines, chiefly Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, retain balance and elegance, yet improve admirably with age. This Cabernet features bright acidity, ample but not astringent tannin, and a top layer of bright and delicious fruit, chiefly black currant and blackberry, without being heavy, thin, flabby, or sweet. A superb value at the $16 I paid.
