93 Points James Halliday
Medium red-purple; a fragrant and aromatic bouquet with spicy overtones to the berry and leaf fruit leads into a palate where spice, berry, cherry, leaf and mint are all present in abundance. The oak has been perfectly controlled throughout, and the wine finishes with excellent, fine tannins.
94 Points Wine Front
The wine opens with dark fruits, earth clods, thick furls of mocha and a hit of lifted spice ” it’s classic aged Shiraz. The palate is slippery, still has reasonable vitality and blends secondary savoury characters with remnants of forest berries, supple/chocolatey tannins and a long, plush finish. Some chatter and distraction and the wine kept revealing more, including some, yes, it was there, brett, which increased in intensity as the wine opened, but without compromising the wine before it was finished. A good thing.
