IWC 92 JS 91 WA 90 Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Vivid purple. Highly fragrant aromas of candied cassis, blueberry and licorice, with pungent notes of vanilla bean, violet and mocha. Lush, intensely flavored and broad, offering deep black and blue fruit and vanilla qualities and an exotic floral nuance. Finishes smooth, smoky and long, with resonating spiciness and slow-mounting, supple tannins.
According to James Suckling - Loads of sweet berry and tobacco character on the nose and palate. Little Porty, but I like it. Full and velvety, with flavors all over. A luscious and almost decadent fruit forward red with balance. Drink now.
According to Wine Advocate - The deep garnet-purple colored and100% Shiraz 2012 Bishop presents a nose of warm blackcurrants, black plums and wild blueberries with touches of licorice, tar and game. Its full-bodied frame has plenty of juicy black berry flavors held in place by medium levels of grainy tannins, crisp acid and a finish with good persistence. Drink it now to 2020.
According to Wine Spectator - Dark and spicy, with violet and peppercorn overtones to the dark berry flavors, finishing with hints of wet earth and sweet oak. Drink now through 2018.
Tasting Notes - Deep purple garnet in color, the nose displays creme de cassis and violet fruit notes. The palate is rich, voluptuous and mouth filling with spicy fruit characters and a long, elegant finish.
