95 Points James Halliday
Retains hue and depth; complex texture and structure; a tapestry of black fruits, chocolate and fine French oak. Drink to 2020.

RP 87 points: The flagship 2002 Eileen Hardy Shiraz is opaque purple-colored. Reticent aromatically, notes of blueberry & lavender eventually emerge. Fleshy & with ample fruit, the wine is well-balanced & has enough structure to evolve for 4-6 years. However, the fruit lacks the ripeness & depth of flavor to merit a higher score.
