94 Points Robert Parker
The 2002 Shiraz was sourced from 89 year old vines and spent 30 months in 3-5 year French barriques. Very deep garnet in color, it gives intense aromas of dried plum and warm blackberries over notes of dusty earth, menthol, coffee, tree bark, black truffle, tobacco and licorice. Very full and concentrated in the mouth, it has medium-firm grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long, layered though slightly warm finish. Drinking now, it should continue to give pleasure to 2018.
