– Reviews –
‘Very deep garnet-purple colored, the 2010 The Boxer Shiraz has notes of warm blackberries and blueberries with nuances of menthol, some spice cake, anise and bacon fat. Concentrated, big, rich and ripe, it offers a very spicy palate with some licorice and cumin seed coming through, supported by a medium level of velvety tannins, lively acidity and finishing very long. Drink it now to 2017+.’ – 91 points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, www.erobertparker.com
‘Fresh and vibrant, this delivers a lively mouthful of dark cherry, mocha and bay leaf flavours that linger on the firm finish. Best after 2013. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.’ – Harvey Steiman, www.winespectator.com
