96 Points James Halliday
A sentimental return to mark Wolf Blass's 80th birthday after being discontinued after '01; a blend from McLaren Vale (58%), Langhorne Creek (22%) and the Barossa Valley (20%), matured in new French (95%) and American oak. It's clear top quality parcels of fruit have been used, for it has tremendous drive and persistence to its black fruits; tannins and oak are mere adjuncts. Drink to 2042.
