92 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with cumin and caraway seed aromas that add a level of aromatic complexity to the dense, mineral-laced wild blackberry flavors. Shows plenty of concentration on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 30 cases imported. (6/15/17)"
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "From ex-Penfolds winemaker John Duval and made in part from vines over 150 years old, this Grenache offers a complexity and depth. This favors dark fruit on the nose and is chock full of intriguing aromas of cumin, clove, chocolate, sandalwood and mint. The palate offers more of the same multifariousness, with added minerality reminiscent of hot stones and graphite. Drink now-2027. Alcohol 14%. (Dec 2017)"
92 points James Halliday (Wine Companion): "Sourced from old vines, matured for 14 months in used French oak. As is the case with most Barossa Valley grenache, you will either love or dislike the sweet fruit (not residual sugar-sweet) with or without confection, the last undoubtedly a Barossa Valley varietal character. Alcohol 14%. Drink by 2025. (3/6/17)" Producer notes: "The 2015 Annexus is vibrant purple-red in color. The nose reveals vibrant red fruit aromatics complexed by red roses and savory spice. The palate is fine and long, delicate yet carrying impressive purity and flavor intensity. An array of ripe red fruits, dark cherry and raspberry fill the palate finishing with hints of clove, dusty earth and velvety tannins."
