Very deep crimson in color. Perfumed, with sweet lifted spicy aromas of plum, blackberry, anise, herbs and spices. Complex, with hints of sage, pepper, vanilla and cedar. The rich, complex, textured palate is sweet, juicy and fleshy, layered with spicy velvety tannins. Elegant and powerful, with great length.
"The flagship 2004 Hill of Grace (100% Shiraz) was sourced from vines ranging in age from 56 to 148 years. It spent 18 months in 100% new French oak. Purple-colored, it reveals a breathtaking aromatic array of violets, pepper, leather, smoked meat, game, blueberry compote, and black cherry. It splendidly combines elegance with power in a spicy, savory amalgam along with that extra dimension that can only be provided by old vines and a great site. Drink this hedonistic Shiraz from 2015 to 2040."
The Wine Advocate
"Ripe, supple and seamless, this is marked by delicious pepper and dark chocolate nuances to the focused cherry, plum and fresh orange peel flavors, making for a lush mouthful that lasts and lasts on the creamy-textured finish. Shiraz. Drink now through 2020.
"Typically medium-bodied and restrained, showing its class with its extreme length and great balance. Berry fruits and seductive spicy notes are in plentiful supply. Screwcap."
