92 Points Robert Parker

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2009 The Chosen Road Block Shiraz offers a complex, spiced / earthy nose of warm blackberries, kirsch, mulberries, baking spices and underbrush with touches of chocolate and black truffle. Full bodied and richly fruited with spiced black berry flavors, it has firm structure of medium to high level grainy tannins and crisp acidity. The finish is long with the earthy / savory nuances coming through. Approachable now, it should drink well to 2020+.

95 Points James Halliday

Scarce Earth has given McLaren Vale’s most sensitive winemaker the courage to harvest even earlier. A brittle shell of firm, finely textured tannins encases restrained cherry and plum fruit and lifted violet perfume. Masterfully crafted, a wine of epic length, line and control. The longest lived wine in the House, it will take many years to uncoil. Drink 2021 - 2031.

Vivid purple hue; simply loaded with attractive spiced black fruits, fruitcake and highlighted by red fruit notes; the palate is warm and inviting, yet retains freshness and vitality as the ample tannins provide structure for the fruit; long, engaging, warm and friendly. Drink to 2020.
