The Wine Advocate
Petit Verdot can rarely stand on its own, but Craneford's 2002 is an inky/blue/purple-colored offering displaying notes of incense, liquid minerals, black fruits, and damp earth. Dense, chewy, and enormous in the mouth, the question is, will the fruit hold and the tannin ultimately subside, or will the tannin take over? For now, I am optimistic as this stunning wine looks to be one of the finest Petit Verdots I have ever tasted.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #148



90/100
Wine Companion
Blackberry, prune and licorice in a sweet wrapping of chocolate and ripe tannins. A seemingly impossible variety to subvert in moderate climates.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2006



89/100
Wine Spectator
Distinctive for its floral, slightly gamy red berry and plum flavors, which get a nice lift from juicy acidity as they persist into the fine-grained, lively finish. This could develop into something special with cellaring.

Fox Creek-JSM-Shiraz Cabernet-2001-750mL

A bright wine with a red rim and a darker plum coloured core. Spicy red cherry and dark cherry combination with a smoky character derived from 15 months in oak. There are also hints of caramel from barrel maturation and pepper from the Shiraz component in the wine. As a young wine, the entry to the palate is soft yet fresh. In the mouth the wine expands to give a range of flavours from cherry and dark berries to a spice-like quality. The tannins are firm, but soft enough so as to complement the fruit weight. The wine has a sweet middle palate, but finishes dry.

Maxwell-Ellen Street-Shiraz-2001-750mL

What was originally known for over 100 years as Ellen Street runs along the southern boundary of the Maxwell vineyards. Situated between this road and the winery is a small vineyard of craggy, gnarled Shiraz vines planted in 1953.

 

Every year these vines bear some of the best fruit on the estate, however in very small quantities, with an average crop of between 1 and 2 tonnes per acre.

Craneford-John Zilm-Cabernet Sauvignon-2004-750mL

The wine sees neutral French and American oak that seasons the pure fruit. There are aromas of violets, black current, dark cherry and a mineral note.

 

These elements come together on the palate with soft tannins and a touch of bittersweet chocolate that follow through with fine length.
