Winemaker's Notes
"Dense black. Aromas of dark fruits, bitter chocolate, subtle char, graphite and spice, grilled meats. Extremely complex and flavoursome but quite restrained. Full of dark fruits and chocolate, spice and char that roll on and on, all wound up with fine long subtle tannins. "

Technical Notes
"Aged 23 months with the final 12 months in 100% new French oak hogheads. Drink 2015-2030. 14.5% alc."
James Halliday
"96 pts ... Still dense purple-crimson, the cork showing no signs of wine travel; a riotously rich and voluptuous palate, with a symphony of black fruits, licorice, plum cake, dark chocolate, sweet oak and ripe tannins. Pray the cork lives as long as the wine.

Stephen Tanzer
"95 pts ... Inky purple. Intense aromas of dark berries, cherry skin, pipe tobacco and graphite, with a jolt of Indian spices adding lift. Completely stains the palate with deep black and blue fruit flavors and shows impressive energy to go along with its power. Bitter chocolate and vanilla notes carry through a satisfyingly long, sweet, subtly tannic finish that shows excellent breadth and focus. This doesn't want to let up, which is fine with me."

Wine Spectator
"97 pts ... Vivid flavors of raspberry, boysenberry, cream and spice mix smoothly as they play against refined tannins in this aristocratic Shiraz, which lets the finish linger gracefully. Gripping in its depth and ease of expression. Drink now through 2020."
