92 Points Robert Parker
The 2007 The Factor is a 100% Shiraz cuvee. Alluring notes of game, bacon, incense, and blueberry lead to a ripe, layered, complex wine lacking the opulence of top vintages such as 2002, 2004, and 2005. Nevertheless, this is an outstanding wine that will be at its best from 2013 to 2022.

Good colour; a complex and evocative bouquet with abundant black fruits and a touch of licorice, then a generous, ripe palate. It is perfectly legal to use 15% of ’08 vintage wine - I have no idea whether this was done, but it wouldn't surprise if it was. Shiraz. Drink to 2022.
