Reserve  |  2002 HJ Reserve Shiraz

JEREMY OLIVER, 14-3-2007, 97 points

A massive but supremely elegant and tightly controlled wine, the HJ from 2002 (19.2/97, drink 2022-2032) combines dark, brooding fruit with a muscular extract that is still losing some blocky edges. Exemplary in its length and balance, it will develop for ages, if given the chance.
