This offers up rather subtle aromatics with a spicy oak top note followed by gentle notes of plum and black raspberry edged with licorice, tar and olive brine. In the mouth this is very rich, yet very well balanced. There’s a lot of flavor here with black raspberry fruit bursting on the mid-palate and gaining notes of spice, toasty pie crust, subtle mint and even some herb tones lurking in the fruit which show up on the long finish as a nuanced tomato/barbeque sauce tone. The feel of the wine is moderately chewy and quite fresh, particularly on the long finish, which is richly fruited but lacks any sweetness. It’s got a nice spice tone on the finish and lovely suggestions of soil and talc on the finale. If The Factor is whispering this talking trigonometry. This is really interesting and fairly complex but paying attention to it is rewarding. 92pts

A really rich, big Syrah, big body but lighter tannins; drinkable now, will improve for a few years. Would have been a higher rating but it had the most sediment I have ever seen in 25+ years of wine drinking.

Black olive and raspberry nose. Flavors mingle ripe sweet blackberries, some nicely integrated oak, chocolate pudding, bananas, and melt away smoothly to a tarry finish.

Another hit from Torbreck. Loads of blueberry and blackberry liqueur flavor, amongst others, great structure and an extremely long finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

ROBERT PARKER TASTING NOTES: �It delivers a splendid bouquet of lead pencil, game, blueberry muffin, and blackberry liqueur. This is followed by an elegant Shiraz which is nevertheless full-bodied, dense, and richly flavored. Plush on the palate, it has superior depth and length and the structure to evolve for 6-8 years. Drink it through 2027. 94 points� PORTHOS INSIDER SCOOP: This wine wins our vote for �best buy� among the highest rated Aussie Shiraz each year and this vintage in particular is a team favorite!
