James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright crimson-purple; the bouquet is a fragrant and complex blend of black and red fruits, spice and oak, the palate with great elegance, balance and length. Reflects the excellent vintage.

Floral pepper spice with blue berry, black berry and pretty vanilla caramel edged bbq smoke oak.The sumptuous palate has very creamy ripe fine tannins providing a silky rolling richness to the front and middle with the licorice, black fruit, spice and berry fruit unfolding into minerally tannins on the finish. Medium full bodied.

Deep purple-crimson; the bouquet is at once complex yet welcoming, leading on to the finely structured palate full of blackberry and plum plus hints of spice and licorice; fine-grained savoury tannins and quality oak frame the finish.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Strong crimson; a very appealing bouquet of dark berry and plum fruit and some oak; the medium- to full-bodied palate has black fruits, a dash of dark chocolate, persistent but ripe tannins and quality oak.

Elegant wines with dense blackberry fruit and wonderful soft powdery tannins that will age well and get more interesting.

Slight colour development; right in the mainstream of Heathcote shiraz style, with black fruits in abundance, gently savoury tannins providing a good contrast.

Full-bodied; abundant blackberry fruit with touches of bitter chocolate and licorice; ripe tannins and good oak; carries the alcohol without trouble; high-quality cork.
