Marsican Shiraz - 2016

97 Points
A barrel selection chosen from a couple of vineyard blocks, the 250-case production 2016 Marsican Shiraz exudes richness. Loaded with mocha and dark berries, accented by vanilla and dried spices, it's full-bodied and velvety yet not overly soft or plush. Possessed of a gentle but steady structure, terrific complexity and tremendous length, it should drink well for up to 20 years. 
Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, May 2021

94 Points
Powerful and robust, with black liquorice and tar overtones to the spiced plum, cocoa powder, dried blackberry, blueberry tannins, plenty of aromatics and oomph on the long finish. Drink now through 2036. 250 cases made. 
MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator, June 2021

93 Points
This is a huge leap forward from the 15. Still a behemoth. Still with a clang to the acidity. Nevertheless, floral, pulpier, more poised and damn, simply far more drinkable. A lovely nose of violet and bergamot, segueing to iodine, blueberry, salumi and pepper grind. Impressive gear. 
Ned Goodwin MW, Wine Companion, June 2021
