James Suckling: 99 Points

A great St. Henri and although multi-regional this is very much a wine that speaks of the Barossa Valley with aromas of ripe blackberries and red plums that are so fresh together with tobacco young-leather earth chocolate coal-smoke and tarry accents. Effortless depth on the palate with summer berries framed in fine alabaster-like tannins that are underscored with discreet power. So long and captivating. A blend of Barossa Valley McLaren Vale Port Lincoln Robe Padthaway Clare Valley and Adelaide Hills. Drink over the next decade or more. Screw cap.

The 2018 St Henri Shiraz is a terrific effort perhaps rivaling the top-flight wines under this label in 1976 and 1986. Remarkably fine and silky in texture yet simultaneously dense and concentrated it showcases the amazing fruit harvested in 2018. Boysenberry mulberry and mocha shadings all swirl together effortlessly in a whorl of full-bodied elegance finishing long and effortless. Mainly Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale it includes smaller amounts of fruit from Port Lincoln Robe Padthaway Clare Valley and the Adelaide Hills all aged 12 months in large old wooden vats.

Vinous: 95 Points

Dark bright-rimmed violet color. A wild highly complex bouquet evokes spice-tinged black/blue fruits pipe tobacco savory herbs potpourri and olive paste. Weighty and yet energetic in style offering mineral-driven bitter cherry cassis chewing tobacco and exotic spice flavors that turn sweeter through the back half. Round slowly building tannins give framework to a very long smoky finish that echoes the cherry and tobacco notes. (Drink between
