92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2009

($40; 51% shiraz, 28% grenache and 21% mourvedre) Deep ruby-red. Fresh raspberry and cherry aromas display a striking southern Rhone-like character, with complicating notes of dried flowers, spicecake and minerals. Juicy and smooth, with sweet red berry flavors and gentle tannins. The finish is brisk, gently sweet and long. No way I'd have guessed that this came from a drought year. Ninety percent of this wine was raised in five- or six-year-old French hogsheads, the rest in new casks.

Jammy, smooth and not overripe. Almost restrained by Barossa standards. good.
Balanced Barossa
by Marnot
Tastes like the Shiraz you used to get a decade ago. Inky black and rich but not grossly alcoholic.

This wine is a work in progress. At the moment there is no heat, very fresh berry flavors -- and just a hint of what will come when some of the flavors open up. At the moment, I would decant for a few hours - otherwise let it sit for a couple of years.
