91 Points Robert Parker

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 V & A Lane Select Vineyard Shiraz displays a fragrant nose of black raspberries, cherries and red plums with nuances of cardamom, thyme and lavender. The medium-bodied palate is well structured with firm, chewy tannins and crisp acid framing the taut fruit. It finishes with a good length. Drink it now to 2020+.

94 Points James Halliday

Classic release of this much-loved wine. It simply gets the balance right. Delicious plum and saltbush flavours, a light smear of spicy/vanillan oak, some come-hither characters courtesy of sweet raspberry, and the integrity of a dry, structural, gently herbal finish. Drink to 2028.

94 Points James Halliday

Excellent crimson-purple; the fruit-driven bouquet has black cherry, spice and a hint of black pepper, the medium-bodied palate with layers of blackberry, black cherry and integrated oak; the high quality tannin structure completes the package of one of the best of this proud lineage. Drink to 2032.

94 Points James Halliday

Deep colour; a fragrant burst of cherry, plum and spice on the bouquet leads into a palate that moves into more powerful black fruits and licorice, the tannins round and soft. Drink to 2028.

93 Points James Halliday

The bouquet is driven by red and black cherry fruit, a sprinkle of spice and some oak, but it is the medium-bodied palate that defines the wine, effortlessly conveying its range of black fruits, savoury tannins and refreshing acidity. It is, I suppose, useless to suggest cellaring long into the future, but do keep some bottles as long as you can. If often heavily discounted. Drink to 2025.

93 Points James Halliday

An elegant, medium-bodied wine; the ripe fruit has returned to Coonawarra in '05; blackberry with some spice and cracked pepper; fine, ripe tannins and good oak. Drink to 2020.

93 Points James Halliday

Medium to full purple-red; wonderfully ripe black cherry and spice aromas show fully ripened fruit on the bouquet. The palate has more of the same, with vibrantly spicy fruit, good depth and weight, and soft tannins. It is a fruit, rather than oak-driven wine, typical of the best of the line. Drink to 2002.

92 Points James Halliday

Bright crimson-purple; the earthy/spicy overtones to the red and black fruits of the bouquet are replayed on the medium-bodied palate, where red fruits and ripe tannins carry the day. A very successful '11. Drink to 2021.

92 Points James Halliday

Coonawarra was unaffected by the heat that gave rise to Black Saturday, with only four hot days before veraison, and a cool season on either side of that burst. The wine has distinct nuances of pepper and spice to the black cherry and blackberry fruit, and the balance is impressive, given its price. The 2010 has taken a price jump outside the purview of this book, but will be discounted, so watch for it. Drink to 2015.

92 Points James Halliday

Good purple-red; nicely ripened plum and blackberry fruit on the bouquet leads into a well balanced palate with good texture, and savoury/spicy tannins. Drink to 2020.
Source: James Halliday. February, 2009

91 Points James Halliday

Light- to medium-bodied, but all the components of fruit, oak and tannins are well-balanced; gentle black fruits and soft tannins, will improve with age. Tasted when 18 months old. Drink to 2014.

91 Points James Halliday

Strong red-purple; ripe, aromatic plum, prune, blue berry and mulberry fruit to the bouquet lead into a palate with good depth and richness to the sweet fruit, reinforced by substantial tannins for the long haul. Good wine. Drink to 2015.
Source: James Halliday. October, 2002

91 Points James Halliday

Medium red; attractive clean spicy/peppery varietal fruit with subtle oak. There are pronounced pepper/spice varietal flavours on the palate, yet the wine has adequate weight and extract, finishing with good acidity and subtle oak. Drink to 2001.
Source: James Halliday. December, 1994

90 Points James Halliday

Quite intense and firm structure; black fruits; good oak, fine tannins and long carry. Will improve. Drink to 2010.
Source: James Halliday. October, 2004

90 Points James Halliday

Medium purple-red; the moderately intense bouquet is clean and smooth, with excellent mulberry fruit and oak integration and balance. There is plenty of sweet, dark berry/cherry fruit on the palate, with soft tannins contributing to a well-structured wine. Drink to 2011.
Source: James Halliday. December, 1999

90 Points James Halliday

Strong purple-red; an exceptionally smooth and intense bouquet, with abundant rich and sweet dark cherry and plum fruit swells into a round, mouth-filling palate, showing more of the same fruit flavours tinged with spice and subtle oak, closing with soft tannins. Drink to 2010.
Source: James Halliday. January, 1998

90 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; there is far more concentration and weight to the bouquet than most wines in its price category, with abundant dark berry, spice and briary fruit. Has developed extremely well since release, with plenty of briary/dark berry fruit flavours, good tannins and subtle oak. No doubt benefits from the inclusion of the portion normally destined for Michael Shiraz. Drink to 2009.
Source: James Halliday. October, 1997

90 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple, bright and clear; the bouquet shows an array of spicy black cherry fruit aromas with oak barely perceptible. A strongly fruit-driven wine in the mouth, with intense earthy/spicy dark cherry fruit; the oak has been used as a medium for maturation and not as a flavour modifier. Less opulently ripe than some of the prior vintages, but none the worse for that. Drink to 2003.
Source: James Halliday. March, 1996

89 Points James Halliday

Light to medium-bodied; clean, fresh and unforced; mid-range red and black fruits; subtle oak; doesn't sing right now. Drink to 2010.
Source: James Halliday. October, 2005

89 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; clean, smooth, cherry and plum fruit with a touch of vanilla oak is followed by a medium-bodied palate with good balance, weight and extract. A very good outcome for the vintage. Drink to 2006.
Source: James Halliday. November, 2000

88 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; a clean, smooth gently ripe bouquet with black cherry fruit merging with supple, smooth, well-integrated oak, then a firm, fresh, youthful palate needing more time in bottle. The earlier release date has not been without pain. Drink to 2010.
Source: James Halliday. October, 2001

86 Points James Halliday

Medium red-purple, but showing a little more development than one would expect. The bouquet has a distinct touch of cinnamon spice, together with subtle oak. The palate is pleasant, with gently spicy fruit, but lacks the concentration of the '96 and '95 vintage wines. Drink to 2005.
