97 Points James Halliday
Deeply coloured; the bouquet is almost backward and is slow to reveal the intricate layers of black fruits that lie therein; time reveals succulent black fruits, minerals, fine spices and a touch of fresh garden herbs; the palate delivers a wonderful mixture of opulent fruit, savoury complexity, and silky fine tannins that persist for an incredibly long time; only at the very end do you get a glimpse of the fine oak in use; certain to be long-lived. Drink to 2025.

94 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet in color with hint of purple, the 2009 Shiraz Viognier has evolved into a baked berry and prune nose with underlying violets, salami and toast. Medium-bodied and muscular with medium to firm, chewy tannins, it finishes long and concentrated. Drink it now to 2023+.
