Smoky oak and blackberry shiraz fruit entwined in a dance of equals that still looks good the day after the wine is opened.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Has lifted red and black fruits with a strong savoury edge; the oak is there, playing a supporting role; the finish is quite firm, but the fruit follows through well.

Tyson Stelzer (2006 Vintage) says
A big and brooding Hillside with great concentration, controlled by firm, finely structured tannins. Its loaded with dense liquorice, black tar and coal and manages to maintain a freshness of black plum and cherry fruit throughout.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Bright red fruits, particularly fresh and vibrant on the bouquet; deeply fruited and long, with fresh acidity on the finish.

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Bright red and dark fruits on the bouquet, with a little savoury edge of dried leather and spice; the finish is long, pure and even.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Good colour; soft, round and rich; gentle plum, mocha and vanilla; everything moulded by 2 years in oak. Shares the ultimate retro-style label with Block 6.

Elegant, medium-bodied style; does not show its 15° alcohol, partly due to balancing acidity; savoury, dark fruits.

Jeremy Oliver (2001 Vintage) says
Concentrated blackberry confiture aromas with plums and licorice, cinnamon and cloves over sweet coconut and vanilla oak. Ripe, round and smooth, if slightly soupy expression of sweet plums and dark berries well integrated with chocolate/vanilla oak with a good fine tannin structure inserted beneath.

James Halliday (2000 Vintage) says
Medium red-purple; a mix of dark berry, blackberry, plum, earth and chocolate on the bouquet precede a medium-bodied palate with gently sweet fruit, excellent mouthfeel and texture; fine, savoury tannins.

James Halliday (1999 Vintage) says
Medium to full red-purple; concentrated prune, dark plum and chocolate aromas foretell a super-concentrated palate redolent with dark chocolate and blackberry; the 15° alcohol is evident, but certainly within bounds for this style.
