Rosenthal Richings Shiraz 2010 – 92 points
Another super wine from this small Blackwood Valley producer specialising in red wines with a strong shiraz influence. Dark berry and liquorice on the nose with a decent whiff of cedar and vanilla essence. The palate is deeply intense and concentrated with a typical velvety smooth texture. The tannins are ripe and the oak well weighted. Lovely sweet middle palate with a little spicy savouriness. Better after a few more years once that oak settles in.
Rosenthal the Naomi cabernet shiraz 2010 94 points
Ripe juicy berry bursts from the glass exhibiting abundant cherry and blackberry aromas plus a little cedary oak influence adding structure and complexity. The juicy fruit flavours are appealing and more medium bodied than full. Still there is plenty in this elegant and most stylish expression of the Blackwood Valley.

Rosenthal The Naomi Cabernet Shiraz 2010 – Gold Medal – 19 Points
A good example of this uniquely Australian wine blend. Great colour with an intense aroma of raspberry, blackcurrant cedar, dark fruits and lashings of oak. It is full-bodied, rich, juicy, fleshy wine with fine tannins, good length of flavour and finishing with a raspberry aftertaste.
