89 Points Robert Parker
Made from a Mediterranean blend of 70% Grenache, 25% Shiraz, and 5% Mourvedre, the 2000 The Ironstone Pressings offers aromas of pepper, dried herbs, black cherries, and other earthy, dusty black fruits in its opulent, luscious personality. It requires consumption over the next 7-8 years.
