95/100
The Wine Advocate
The 2002 Shiraz Block 6 (made from 112-year-old vines cropped at a mere 1-2 tons of fruit per acre) is the antithesis of the Hillside cuvee. Backward and nearly impenetrable, its inky/ruby/purple color is accompanied by high levels of tannin, huge structure, and massive concentration. This dense Shiraz saturates the palate with extract and concentration as well as elevated tannin. It is amazing one winery could produce two wines that are so totally opposite. Only consumers with cool cellars and the patience should purchase this blockbuster.
WA, Robert Parker Jr. Issue: #155



94/100
Wine Companion
Dense colour; powerful, concentrated blackberry/dark chocolate; good overall balance and extract; subtle oak.
, James Halliday Issue: Mar 2005



92/100
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Dark ruby. Strikingly aromatic and all over the olfactory map, offering notes of dark cherry, blackcurrant, graphite, violet, rose, Sen-Sen, licorice pastille, underbrush and cracked pepper, all framed by sexy, light, bourbony oak notes. Very rich and full, with terrific cut and lift. The flavors of bright red berries are complicated by sweet pastry hints and tangy minerality. This has wonderful freshness and life for its size and should richly reward cellaring.
ST, Josh Raynolds Issue: Aug 1 2005



88/100
Wine Spectator
Very dense, with smoky, licorice-scented black fruit flavors. Firmly tannic on the finish. Needs time to settle down.
WS, Harvey Steiman Issue: Sep 30 2005
