James Halliday, July 2008
Shows exceptional generosity from start to finish, yet retains finesse; the predominantly red fruits positively dance on the back-palate and finish, uninhibited by the fine-grained tannins; stained cork a worry.

The wine displays fantastic depth and richness combined with a solid, structured palate. On the nose, it shows smoky dark fruits, blackberry liqueur, raw meat, herbs, flowers and pepper. With air, a slightly wild, gamey character comes out. It’s full bodied on the palate and carries a full, silky texture, perfectly ripe fruit, serious underlying structure and a very long finish. This is stunning now but should also age beautifully over the next 12 to 15 years.

It spent 24 months in 30% new oak. The aromatic array of balsam wood, smoke, pepper, espresso, blueberry, and licorice is eye-opening. This leads to a rich, glossy, full-flavored Shiraz with layers of succulent fruit, ripe tannin, exceptional spiciness, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will evolve for another 8-10 years and will have a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2036. - Jay Miller

Powerfully scented bouquet offers blackberry, cherry-cola, licorice, violet oil and vanilla, with mounting spiciness adding vivacity. Deep in dark berry flavors but by no means heavy, offering sweet floral and licorice pastille qualities and a lashing of smoky minerals. Unfolds slowly to show brighter red fruits. An extremely young shiraz with excellent finishing clarity and an echo of cola. - Josh Raynolds
