    HUON HOOKE - THE REAL REVIEW


    Super-ripe dark chocolate, raisiny, toasty and cooked-fruit aromas command the bouquet. A full-bodied but quite elegantly-crafted wine with tremendous intensity and distinction. There's a lot of toasty vanilla oak and it's full of character. In spite of the very ripe, opulent fruit and liberal oak it's still fresh and vibrant. A wine with a massive future.

    NED GOODWIN - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION


    Strong barrel ferment aromas lead off, scenting this fully flared wine with deli meats and smoked backstop aromas. Then the fruit: blue and black allusions all. Anise, clove, cardamom and vanilla-cased oak. Lots. Yet while it confers a guideline to the riot of fruit and warmth, it is nestled within the ensemble rather than smothering it. The tannin management: creamy and luxuriant, yet authoritative, is this wine's focal point.

    JOE CZERWINSKI - WINE ADVOCATE


    The current release 2015 The Armagh Shiraz is the biggest of the recent bottlings of this icon. Full-bodied, dense and rich, it takes concentrated blackberries and boysenberries, then frames them in oak spice and maple syrup, yet it remains somehow savory and dry. The tannins are supple on the mid-palate, then firm on the finish, accented by crisp acids.

    JAMES SUCKLING


    The boldness here is striking with assertive red plums, earth and toasted spices, all layered on the nose. The palate has a very taut, gently lemony core of red fruit and a long, fresh and assertive finish. Drink over the next decade.
