WA 98 The 2004 Shiraz Greens Vineyard, which emerges from the Vinevale sub-region of Barossa, was cropped at one ton of fruit per acre, aged in 100% new French hogsheads, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Representing the essence of the vineyard, and looking more like blood than wine, it possesses an inky/purple color as well as a beautiful bouquet of roasted meats, blackberries, cherries, and jus de viande, a brilliant mid-palate and finish, and a tremendously long, blockbuster mouthfeel that saturates the palate. Some tasters may feel it is too much of a good thing, but it is incredibly pure, brilliantly well-balanced, and will become...
WA 95 Very deep garnet-brick. Intense blackberry and warm plums with lots of spice notes: nutmeg, allspice, star anise and cinnamon. A faint whiff of salami. The full bodied palate provides layers of fruit and spice flavours supported by very fine medium-firm tannins and medium+ acidity. Very long finish with lingering notes of black pepper. Drink now to 2020. Tasted February 2008.LPB.
WA 95 A new offering from Kevin Mitchell is the 2003 Shiraz M Reserve, which is fashioned from a single vineyard in McLaren Vale. Aged 24 months in French and American oak hogsheads (40% new), this unfiltered blockbuster possesses fabulous stuffing along with sweet cassis and blackberry fruit, truffle, camphor, flower, and melted asphalt characteristics. With enormous flavor dimensions and a multi-layered texture, this is Australian Shiraz at its biggest, richest, and most intense. It should drink well for 15+ years. RPJ Oct 2005
WA 98 A new offering, the 2004 Shiraz M Reserve, aged in 80% French and 20% American oak hogsheads (40% new) for 24 months, was neither fined nor filtered. A monumental example of Shiraz, it is as dark and opaque as a moonless night. Revealing gorgeous notes of roasted herbs, blackberries, sweet cherries, plums, fennel, new saddle leather, and a hint of toasty oak, this full-bodied, powerful, still young and backward 2004 will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well for two decades or more. RPJ Oct 2006.
JH 95, WS 94, WA 92+. Tasting note: Dense crimson; extremely powerful, dense and rich, sumptuous rather than aggressive; dark chocolate comes through strongly, and the wine has a certain finesse on the finish. (04-Mar-2008) [James Halliday] WA 92+ The 2005 Shiraz “M Reserve” is a glass-coating opaque purple. Slightly reticent aromatically, it gives up mineral, pencil lead, and scorched earth aromas as well as notes of blueberry and blackberry. On the palate the wine is structured and slightly compact. It will need a minimum of 5-7 years to blossom although the potential is there. JM Oct 2007.
WA 95 The 2006 Oracle Shiraz spent 22 months in French oak, 50% new. Opaque purple-colored, it exhibits a captivating nose of toasty oak, truffle, mineral, violets, black pepper, blueberry compote, and blackberry. Glossy on the palate with superb depth, it exhibits gobs of savory blue and black fruits, hints of chocolate, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 4-6 years. Drink this explosive effort from 2013 to 2026. JM Feb 2009.
