96 Points Robert Parker
The 2006 The Cream Shiraz is a barrel selection of the two best barrels of each of the single vineyards. As often happens, the whole is better than the sum of the parts. Opaque purple-colored, this glass-coating Shiraz offers a sensational nose of smoke, lavender, bacon, truffle, blueberry compote, and blackberry liqueur. Voluptuous, complex, spicy, and intensely flavored, it is impeccably balanced, long, and age-worthy. Allow 6-8 years of further evolution and drink it from 2015 to 2035.
