Tasting Notes:

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

91 points "Ripe and generous, teeming with spicy, peppery, slightly earthy blackberry, cocoa bean and tar flavors, finishing with fine texture and sharp focus. Shiraz, Mourvèdre and Grenache. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 cases made. (HS)" Best 2005-2012
