Showing early notes of reduction on the nose. Takes some time to blow off, but once it does there are attractive notes of plummy fruit, prune and vanilla. Light hints of peppercorn and game might be the remnants of reduction. In the mouth, this is rather lovely, light and fresh, with friendly red and blue fruits. Showing admirable purity. This will probably disappoint many Shiraz drinkers who are looking for more power and complexity, but it does show a more elegant and fresh side of the variety. 87 pts

Lots of blackberry fruit and chili powder. Nice oakiness on the back end of the aroma. Attack is hot and packs good tannins. Slight jamminess on the finish, not sweet. It's an exciting wine, containing the usual pepperiness of Shiraz complemented with really solid fruit.

Smoky earthiness, bold, jammy deep dark fruits in the palate, bright pepper fruits smooth and enjoyable with food. I had several different Australian Shiraz tonight and for my group, this one was our favorite!

Bright and tangy, a deftly balanced style that offers blackberry, red pepper and cherry flavors, lingering softly. Drink now through 2013. –HS
