Wine Spectator | Rating: 78Strongly gamy, with rich cherry and spice that doesn't quite get past the barnyard notes.Author: Harvey Steiman
Wine Advocate | Rating: 94The most backward and potentially longest lived of this trio is the 2003 Shiraz Draycott, a blend of 86% Shiraz, 10% Grenache, and 4% Mourvedre. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by a classic bouquet of licorice, blackberries, plums, and vanillin. Full-bodied, dense, concentrated flavors judiciously marry the finesse school of winemaking with the exuberant, powerful, Barossa style. Boasting beautiful depth, precision, and equilibrium, it will benefit from another 1-2 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 10-15 years.Author: Robert Parker
