"From a top vintage. Opulently rich, with spice and mulberries, it's a joy to drink."Rating: 91/100
Ken Gargett, Brisbane Courier Mail, November 26th 2005

"Mad Dog is a project that draws together two couples and one of their fathers who happens to be a grower in the Barossa Valley. There's plenty of industry experience between them and they have advantageously put it all to good use in this modern juicy fruit bomb. Really pure and lifted black fruits on the nose, the wine has an ethereal, fragrant side, underscored with eastern spice, liquorice and pain grilli. It verges on ethereal and impresses with vibrancy and impact. The oak is more than fully met by the fruit. Look out for redskin raspberry flavour on the palate that opens out to deeper dark chocolate and toasty oak char. The middle fills out nicely with fleshy curtains of fruit and fine dense tannins working away in good balance. For all the verve and vivaciousness, the finish winds up pleasingly savoury, slightly chewy and the plum-cake flavour lasts well over a minute. It will build and integrate in bottle with a year or two." 92+ points
