Deep garnet-purple, Cluster M45’s 2010 Shiraz presents intense blueberry, blackberry and baking spice aromas over notes of mocha, tree bark and black pepper. Full-bodied, rich and densely packed in the mouth, the generous flesh is well-supported by balanced, medium to high acidity and a medium level of velvety tannins, finishing long. It’s tempting to drink now though it should drink best 2014-2024+. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Deep and opaque purple with a narrow garnet robe, the bouquet provides immediate appeal offering up intense minerality and spice. A bit of air helps to reveal some pure black cherry fruit aromas that lie underneath powerful notes of slate and asphalt, and cocoa powder that is, nevertheless, balanced and in line with the medium-weighted palate. This is clearly a young wine that shows as much potential in the cellar as immediate appeal (with some air of course). There’s a coiled core of pure blackfruits that are surrounded by spices and firmed up by some mineral laced tannins. The finish goes on and on but is focused and tight, another indication that much will be revealed in time. A seam of fresh acids adds lift and shape to the fruit core. An compelling mashup of cool-climate Victoria and the hill of Hermitage.

Taut, focused and vivid, with cinnamon-accented cherry and licorice flavors, impressively refined and harmonious through the finish. This tightly wound version needs cellaring to open up. Drink now through 2020. – HS

A heady bouquet displays scents of candied dark berries, cherry-vanilla and incense, along with a smoky topnote. Lush and creamy in texture, offering palate-staining blackberry and cherry compote flavors and a hint of olive. Soft tannins build on the clinging finish, which leaves notes of blue fruits and licorice behind.
