92 Points Robert Parker
The 2008 Neil Ashmead GTS is a Shiraz cuvee from the riper 2008 vintage. Purple-colored, it has an alluring bouquet of damp earth, lavender, pepper, bacon, and blueberry. Full-bodied on the palate, it has a glossy texture, layered flavors bordering on opulent, incipient complexity, plenty of depth and richness, and a long, fruit-filled finish. It can be enjoyed now but will drink well for a decade.
