Premium Wines | 1996 Shiraz
The 2nd vintage released by the Oliver family.
- Robert M. Parker, Wine Advocate - Issue 127, 94/100
The 1996 Shiraz reveals mature aromas and flavors of creosote, melted chocolate, and gorgeous blackberry and cassis. Terrific body imbued with lofty glycerin, alcohol, and extract, it is less evolved than the 1997 as well as bigger, richer and brawnier in the mouth. There is not a hard edge to be found in this accessible Shiraz. It promises to evolve for another 10-15+ years.
