IWC 92 WA 91+ Pts - According to International Wine Cellar - Dark purple. Powerful, seductively perfumed bouquet evokes ripe blackberry, blueberry, roasted coffee, licorice and smoky minerals. Densely packed yet lively, with a supple, seamless texture to the sweet dark fruit and floral pastille flavors. The blue fruit and licorice qualities carry through the finish, which is framed by smooth, even tannins.
According to Wine Advocate - Medium to deep garnet-purple, the 2013 Shiraz The Bishop has a strapping, black fruit, tar and chargrill-laced nose with wafts of bacon and licorice. Unashamedly big, rich, full and fleshy in the mouth, it has a solid backbone of rounded tannins and lively acidity, finishing with excellent length.
According to Wine Spectator - Rich and expressive, emphasizing the savory side of Shiraz, with the meaty, earthy character more prominent than the ripe, full-throated plum and spice flavors. Best from 2017 through 2023.
