Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, October 2006
Supple round and distinctive for the way it balances gamy meaty notes with rich fruit and spice. Offers black cherry dark plum and clove character in abundance while keeping its elements in deft harmony. Really stretches... Supple round and distinctive for the way it balances gamy meaty notes with rich fruit and spice. Offers black cherry dark plum and clove character in abundance while keeping its elements in deft harmony. Really stretches the flavor spectrum. A very special wine. Best from 2010 through 2025. 70 cases imported.

Suave complex aromas of blackcurrant kirsch licorice mocha toasty oak spices cured meat and succulent herbs with a hint of graphite. Lush and round with deep concentrated dark berry flavors accented by smoky spicy oak licorice candy and a suggestion of vanilla. This is surprisingly open and seamless the gentle tannins absorbed by the sweet fruit and musky animal and herb flavors. The very long finish features penetrating blackberry and creme de cassis flavors with suggestions of oak spice and smoked meat sneaking in late. Incidentally this was the only Henschke wine I tasted this year bottled under cork. (Negociants USA Napa CA)

The 2001 Shiraz Hill of Grace (100% Shiraz aged 18 months in 100% new French and American oak) is not a blockbuster but rather a surprisingly elegant full-flavored Shiraz offering notes of mocha white chocolate pepper blackberry liqueur and cassis. Fleshy and earthy with outstanding purity richness and overall symmetry it is a complex more evolved example of this cuvee. It should age nicely for another 12-15 years.
