Michael (92): This is the most accomplished and wise drop of Shiraz tasted at the WineAlign #WWAC14. A hit of snowy sulphur shows just how much growing up it needs. Such a precocious and heady example. A thick, gluey mess of fruit, unsettled and in rapture within its tannic walls. The violets and the rest of the garden rules really tie the room together. Shiraz entrenched, grown and raised, "where the nettle met the rose." For five years later and on patrol for ten more after that. Wow.
