Other Reviews….
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the nose on the 2009 Hill of Grace is a little closed, though it reveals notes of warm black plums, blackberry coulis and cloves with subtle nuances of dried Provence herbs, forest floor and lavender. Medium to full-bodied, it possesses layers of medium to full-bodied black fruit and earth-laced flesh elegantly structured by a medium to firm level of finely grained tannins, nicely balanced acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2026+.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown – Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate

Full crimson-purple; the fragrant bouquet of spiced red and black flower and fruit aromas, the palate so perfectly proportioned and weighted it is easy to just drink it, knowing it ticks each and every box for a classic medium-bodied shiraz. But there's much more to be discovered: the cedar, earth and licorice subtext to the primary web of black fruits and superfine tannins will do for a start.
