98 points "Produced from a dry-farmed, single vineyard of old vine Shiraz (some of which are 120 years old), the stunning, inky/purple-tinged 2002 Shiraz Exile was aged in 100% new French oak. A sweet nose of black fruits, flowers, melted licorice, and espresso roast precedes a wine of amazing concentration, compelling intensity, and a tremendous finish of more than 60 seconds. Although expensive, readers must take into consideration the age of the vines as well as the limited production. This exquisite Shiraz is approachable, but promises to hit its peak in 3-5 years, and last for two decades. Kudos to proprietor Jonathan Malthus for his work in the Barossa. " Best 2008-2022

95 points "($175; 85% shiraz, 10% mourvedre and 5% grenache) Opaque violet. Powerfully scented nose offers an exotic array of dark berries and spices, with smoky minerals and fresh flowers adding complexity. Deep, palate-staining blackberry and mulberry flavors are sharply focused and surprisingly lithe, picking up a hint of sweet tobacco with air. A strikingly complex and seductive wine that will no doubt age but offers immense appeal now. This kept changing in the glass as I followed it over two days."
