Winemaker's Notes

A masterful explosion of contradictions, merging in harmony and captured in a bottle.

Critical Acclaim

"The renowned 2002 Shiraz Duck Muck, a late harvest cuvee with 16.5% alcohol, does not possess the Amarone-like, raisiny, pruny character one might expect from a Shiraz of this power. It boasts a dense purple color, a sumptuous perfume of black fruits, white flowers, and toasty oak, tremendous balance, full body, immense concentration, and abundant glycerin. Give it 3-4 more years of cellaring, and drink it over the following 10-15. Sadly, there are only 200 cases, which I suppose explains the bold pricing. "
95 Points

"Dark flavors of cherry have an edge of sharp acidity and alcohol. A strong peppermint and licorice component adds to the blackberry and tar that lingers impressively on the finish. There's a lot going on here, but it's not going to appeal to everyone."
