About

94

“Duval’s Entity Shiraz nails it again. This is walk up quality. Deep dark berried fruit flavours, swish smoky/cedary oak, ripples of spice-infused tannin. Plenty of length, all fine and filigreed. It’s warm-hearted but it’s manicured. It’s also eminently seductive.”

92 Wine Spectator

"Dense dark chocolate notes give way to bright, fragrant and generous cherry and blackberry flavors, showcasing details of chai tea, black licorice and dried apricot. The intensity and toothsome tannins are appealing, as is the long, rich finish. Drink now through 2035. 2,400 cases imported. — MW"

"This vintage is very much in its infancy, showing quite a bit of chocolaty oak and powerful tannins alongside the ripe fruit at the moment. The producer's hallmark secondary characters are there, too, peeking through the cracks. With time the oak and tannins will integrate into the wine and those bay leaf, graphite, licorice and furniture polish nuances should seem more palpable. Drink 2025–2040. -CP"
