'Dense, dark, chocolatey and meaty; with assertive fruit and firm tannins.'

'Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Georgia's Paddock gives pronounced black forest cake, prunes and blackberry preserves nose with hints of anise, sandalwood, baking spices and espresso. Packed with full-bodied opulence in the mouth, the tannins are ripe and velvety while the finish is effortlessly harmonious. Love it.'
94+ Points - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
'Inky ruby. Highly perfumed aromas of blue fruit and cherry preserves, potpourri, vanilla and candied licorice. Lush and palate-staining but also surprisingly lithe, offering sappy blueberry, cassis and cherry-vanilla flavors and hints of allspice and violet. Dusty tannins sneak up with air and fold steadily into the densely packed fruit, which dominates the long, smooth finish.'
93 points - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
'This distinctive version delivers a bright, juicy, generous mouthful of vibrant cherry and spiced plum flavors, intertwined with fresh earth, pepper and savory details. Offers intensity, persistence and muscular tannins, finishing with a black walnut note'
93 Points - MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator
'Really youthful, with almost grapy aromas buttressed by mocha and lifted, slightly leafy notes. This is a big wine, marked by thick, chewy tannins on the finish, but they never obscure the flavors of grape skins, tapenade and mocha. Try after 2018.'
