Bay leaf, violets and peppery spice mark the nose of the 2016 Shiraz Block 6, produced from vines planted in 1892. It's full-bodied, creamy and supple, then it turns rich and velvety on the long finish. The texture this year really sets it apart, while the flavors of boysenberry and blackberry are wonderfully accented by hints of cracked pepper. Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Block 6 is east-facing, the 124yo vines running north-south. Hand-picked, crushed and destemmed, open-fermented, 10 days on skins, matured for 23 months in puncheons (40% new). The most remarkable feature of the wine is its medium-bodied elegance, with dark cherry and blackberry fruits supported by soft tannins. A tour de force. James Halliday, Wine Companion
