93 Points Robert Parker

Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2007 St Henri Shiraz is a little closed at this stage, revealing subtle earthy notes over crushed blackberries, pencil lead, toast, game, smoky bacon and tree bark. Medium bodied, elegantly fruited and still very tight-knit, the palate offers beautiful purity structured with firm chewy tannins and very crisp acid that should see it through a long life. Consider drinking it 2013 to 2022+.

92 Points James Halliday

A lesser St Henri, from a challenging, fast-ripening year. 100% shiraz, with Robe leading the blend, then McLaren Vale, Langhorne Creek, Padthaway, Barossa Valley, Coonawarra and Adelaide Hills. A fragrance of violets carries through the bouquet and palate, with nuances of pepper and blueberries. Stewy fruit notes, candied strawberries and a dryness to the finish detract, but texture, fruit focus and persistence save the day. Drink 2017 - 2022.
