Museum Wines | 2001 HJ Reserve Shiraz
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The rich, soft 2001 Shiraz Reserve HJ reveals supple tannin, but also a surprising amount of new oak that pushes the fruit to the background, leaving the wine slightly out of balance at present. Perhaps I tasted it on a bad day. It may become more impressive as it ages, but it did not perform as well as its two siblings.

100% McLaren Vale Estate grown
Slight brick dark maroon.
Some cigar box development and lovely dried herb on the nose, with a background of cherry and forest berries.
Sweet fruited, there is still alot of life left in this wine. Layers of chocolate, cherry spice and super soft long tannins. Great example of aged McLaren Vale Shiraz.
