"95 pts ... Shares the exceptional hue of the 1860 Vines, and a significant element of the fruit profile of that wine, all this from an unfancied year; it has black fruits, touches of pepper, licorice and spice, and the medium- to full-bodied palate has ripe tannins to carry it through the decades ahead. Drink through 2030."
"92 pts ... Deep garnet colored, the 2007 Eric Stevens Purbrick Shiraz is scented of blackberry compote and dried Chinese plums with underlying hints of tree bark, leather, game and damp earth. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is led by a solid structure of firm, chewy tannins and refreshing acid fleshed by muscular / savory flavors and finishing long. Drinking now, it should continue to cellar to 2020+. "

$54.9992 WA; 94 JH Savory, by which we mean the pepper and spice box flavors are wonderfully integrated with the lovely dark fruit flavors, especially blackberry and currant. Fabulous with pepper steak, Korea beef, and grilled lamb doused with garlic and rosemary.
