Other Reviews...

The 2008 Block 6 Shiraz has a very deep garnet-purple color and intense notes of tar and anise over warm blueberry and bramble preserve aromas plus hints of cedar, earth, coffee beans and smoked meat. Very crisp, full and rich with good structure, medium-firm fine-grained tannins and a long finish, this is a great effort for this difficult vintage in the McLaren Vale. It’s approachable now but is better broached in a year or two and should cellar to 2020+.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

Good hue and clarity; the full monty, the vines planted in 1892, the open fermentation vats made in 1897, and an old basket press used. Better still, there are none of the cooked fruit characters of ’08, although the regional imprint is clear enough; a really attractive medium-bodied shiraz with great texture and structure.
