Steve Tanzer 90 points - Deep purple-black colored, the 2010 Angel’s Share Shiraz is intensely perfumed of ripe cassis, black cherry compote and blackberry pie with hints of dried plums, aniseed, tar and spice cake. Full bodied and vibrantly fruited on the palate, it offers an abundance of juicy black berry flavors with crisp acidity to enliven and a medium level of velvety tannins. The finish is long with some dried berry components coming through. Delicious at this youthful, primary-fruit stage, it should cellar gracefully to 2018+.
Deep ruby. Ripe, smoky aromas of blackberry and cherry pie, with complicating notes of licorice and dark chocolate. Broad and jammy, offering sweet dark berry flavors and a slow-building cocoa quality. Finishes supple and sweet, with a repeating licorice note and zesty mineral and spice qualities.
