Even bigger than the Greenock Block, but revealing more complexity as well as elegance is the stunning 2002 Shiraz Coach House, which sees 10% new American oak. Aromas and flavors of blackberries, plums, figs, creme de cassis, graphite, smoky new oak, bacon fat, and prunes are present in this dense, full-bodied effort. Monstrous in the mouth, with no hard edges, this is the type of wine that seemingly only Australia is capable of producing. Drink it over the next 10-15+ years. - Robert Parker

Dark, dense and brooding, a powerful mix of tarry, smoky, spicy notes around a solid core of black cherry and plum flavors, finishing with great length and firm tannins. This has all the elements; give it time to settle in. Best from 2008 through 2020. 220 cases imported. –HS

Cassis, pepper, plum and meat. Firm in the mouth, with fine tannins, and its flavors grow darker—olive, earth, pepper—through the long finish. Has substance, class, restraint and perhaps best of all, holding power. Sexy as all get-out now, but we'll probably say the same thing in 2015.
