91 Points Robert Parker

As a demonstration of how some of Torbreck’s more modestly priced wines can age, Powell showed me older vintages of the Juveniles and Woodcutters Shiraz labels. Pale to medium garnet in color with a touch of brick at the rim, the 2002 Juveniles has an earthy, meaty, leather character over a good core of dried mulberries and kirsch. Medium to full-bodied with plenty of mature fruit and savory flavors, it has a medium level of chewy tannins and a refreshing burst of acid, finishing long and peppery. Drink it now.

88 Points James Halliday

Medium red-purple; fresh, juicy berry aromas are replicated on the palate, which has plenty of flavour yet is very soft and with ripe tannins. Micro-oxygenation may well have been used in this unoaked blend of Grenache, Mourvedre and Shiraz. Drink to 2005.

"The unwooded blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, and 20% Shiraz, the 2002 Juveniles, is a crunchy, deliriously fruity red offering aromas of kirsch liqueur, pepper, and spice box in a fruit-driven, full-bodied style that is immensely captivating as well as satisfying. It is meant to be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years."
