96 pts - Australian Wine Companion, 93 pts - Vinous. Classic McLaren Vale aromas of plum, blackberry, licorice and spice. There is a strong sense of the old vines and infertile soils evidenced through a raft of dark, earthy notes and thick, black molasses characters. There is enough savory oak character to support the generous fruit but it isn’t the dominant feature, rather an intrinsic component of an ever changing bouquet of complex characters that ebb and flow. The palate has an incredible depth of flavor and a solid structure built on a framework of firm tannins. This is a wine of great presence and boldness but with a refined, stylish finish that lingers on and on.


93 Points - "Youthful purple. Primary black and blue fruits, floral pastilles, Indian spices and vanilla on the deeply perfumed nose, with a smoky mineral quality adding urgency and lift. Sweet, deeply pitched boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors spread out impressively on the palate, picking up spiciness and a touch of mocha on the back half. This lush, broad, seamless Shiraz finishes with excellent clarity and smooth tannins that contribute structure and gentle grip." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
