Reserve  |  2006 HJ Reserve Shiraz

Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate 2009, 93 points

The 2006 Shiraz H.J. Reserve, sourced from tiny yields of 1 ton per acre, was aged in 100% new French oak. A glass-coating purple/black in color, the nose delivers an aromatic array of pain grille, espresso, scorched earth, smoked meat, and blueberry. Velvety, ripe, and voluptuous on the palate, this beautifully balanced Shiraz will blossom for several more years and drink well through 2021.
