Critical Acclaim

"My favorite of this portfolio is the 2002 Landrace, a brilliant blend of 70% Shiraz (from 40-year-old vines) and 30% Mourvedre, the latter varietal providing structure and uplift to the ripe Shiraz.

96 Points

"Dark ruby. Sweet cassis, blackberry and kirsch aromas, complicated by sweet tobacco, tree bark and a note of road tar. Fat, thick and almost oily, with extracted, clinging flavors of peppery blackcurrant and blackberry preserves. As rich and unctuous as this is, the flavors do not lack for energy. Finishes weighty and sweet but lively, with no noticeable tannins."
