Wine Advocate 91 points
Deep garnet-purple colour. Wonderfully fragrant aromas of eucalyptus, intense blackberry, cloves and star anise on the nose. The full bodied palate is seamlessly balanced with a medium level of silky tannins and medium to high acidity. Very long, spicy finish.
Wine Spectator 91 points
Bright and effusive, slipping a spicy note into the mix as the blackberry and red cherry flavors pop. Veers toward peppermint as the finish lingers with supple texture.
Wine Enthusiast 91 points
This full-bodied, richly textured Shiraz outpunches its weight class, offering licorice, blackberry and plum aromas and fruit-driven flavors that pick up savory nuances of coffee and black olive on the knockout finish.
