91 Points Robert Parker
The dense ruby/purple-colored 2001 Shiraz is a full-throttle, classic South Australian Shiraz possessing abundant aromas of new saddle leather, creme de cassis, smoke, earth, and licorice. Full-bodied, powerful, and potent, with surprising purity as well as overall symmetry for a wine of its size, it will age for 5-10 years.

Sweet black cherry and blackberry aromas; a smooth and supple palate, excellent texture, length and balance. Drink to 2014.
