88 Points Robert Parker
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2013 D''Arry''s Original Shiraz / Grenache reveals an intensely scented nose of crushed black berries and blueberries with touches of pepper, dark chocolate and spice cake. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the mouth with expressive black fruit and spice box flavors with a good amount of texture and freshness to support, finishing long and relatively uncomplicated.

90 Points James Halliday
he initial vintage in '64 was the first to show grenache on the label, winning seven trophies and 25 gold medals. This is an exceptionally powerful wine, with fruit, oak and above all, ripe tannins. Not in the usual style, but is likely to sing in 5-10 years. Most will have been drunk by then, of course. Drink to 2025.
