Wine Advocate: 3 Adelaida wines score 91+ points!

94 points - Twenty Three Twenty Signature 2015

A blend of 32% Syrah, 22% Petite Sirah, 20% Mourvèdre, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Viognier, the 2015 Twenty Three Twenty Signature Estate sports a deep garnet-purple color and nose of crushed black cherries, spiced blackberries and crème de cassis with suggestions of sandalwood and dried Provence herbs. The full-bodied palate delivers taut, muscular black fruits and spice box layers, framed by firm, rounded tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and layered.

93+ points - Cabernet Sauvignon Signature, VIking Estate Vineyard 2015

Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature Viking Vineyard has a vibrant nose of crushed black and red currants with suggestions of plums, cedar chest, pencil lead and bay leaves, plus a waft of cloves. Full-bodied, richly fruited and packed with expressive red and black fruit layers, it has a solid backbone of grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with great length.

91+ points - Cabernet Sauvignon/ Syrah Signature, VIking Estate Vineyard 2015

Composed of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Syrah, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon/Syrah has a deep garnet-purple color and reveals dark chocolate, menthol and pencil shavings notions over a core of cassis, blackberry pie and wild blueberries, plus hints of lavender and dried herbs. Full-bodied, concentrated and offering up fairly open and expressive flavors at the youthful stage, it has a firm line of grainy tannins and lively acid to support, finishing long with an herbal lift.
