Reviews for 2009 Duval Wines, John Entity Shiraz

JH 95
James Halliday - James Halliday, November 2011
Crimson-purple; the perfumed bouquet proclaims the class of the wine its array of blackberry plum and spice fruit duly delivered on the medium-bodied palate; silky tannins and quality oak complete the picture.

Deep garnet-purple colored the 2009 Entity Shiraz displays vibrant aromas of warm cassis crushed blackberries and black cherries over a spicy undercurrent of nutmeg cloves vanilla and anise. Full bodied and rich in the mouth it is nicely poised with a medium level of very finely grained tannins and refreshing acid finishing long with plenty of dark fruit and spice layers. Approachable now it should drink best 2013 to 2023+. -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Juicy and precise with strong spicy lift to its red berry compote flavors. Not an overly rich style of shiraz but offers a silky texture and serious depth of flavor. Finishes long with fine-grained tannins and lingering red fruit and pepper notes.

It's perfumed and fruity kissed seductively by smoky French oak and not at all dense - all its flavours seem up front and on show. Plums blackberries five-spice and beautiful polished high-class oak. Maybe it will age long-term but as a young wine I can't see it - I reckon this will drink best as a vibrant fruity charming youngster.
