96 Points James Halliday
A monument to what can be achieved with shiraz in the utterly perverse climate of the Hunter Valley. Deep red-purple; prune, dark fruits and oak interplay on the bouquet, leading into a sumptuous yet powerful, multi-layered palate of blackberry and dark plum; almost unrecognisable since first bottled. Drink to 2027.
