94 points Wine Spectator: "Impressive in so many ways, not least in how it packs layers and layers of flavor into a lithe package that never loses its refinement. The blueberry and currant flavors submerge themselves in a racy frame, enlivened by acidity but marked by gentle generosity on the long finish. 20 cases made. (2/28/07)"
94 points Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Wine Advocate): "The 2002 Shiraz was sourced from 89 year old vines and spent 30 months in 3-5 year French barriques. Very deep garnet in color, it gives intense aromas of dried plum and warm blackberries over notes of dusty earth, menthol, coffee, tree bark, black truffle, tobacco and licorice. Very full and concentrated in the mouth, it has medium-firm grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long, layered though slightly warm finish. (Dec 2010)"
