“Smooth and rich Shiraz from The Blackwood. Crams so much deliciously opulent savoury plum and leathery fruit into the palate. There’s a fascinating gravelly, dusty influence with traces of licorice, chocolate and coffee grinds. It all stacks up with so much deep power. A wine for extended cellaring. Cellar 12 years.” 93 Points | Ray Jordan, Wine Guide 2016
