Nicks Wine Merchants, 98/100

 

A sensational Shiraz from McLaren Vale. Totally opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. The nose is superb with lift of violets, spice, white pepper, blackberry, dark chocolate and vanilla. The palate flavours explode, delivering concentrated flavours of black pepper, blackberry, vanilla, plum and spice with a touch of anise emerging on the back palate. Outstanding length and depth with fine grained perfectly balanced tannins followed by exceptionally long aftertaste of spice, white pepper, vanilla and liquorice. Cellar 5-8 years (2007-2010)
