2017 Tyrrell’s Old Patch Shiraz – 100 points

“More depth than the four acres. This old plot was planted in 1867 and it has excelled in vintage 2017. The nose carries pristine aromas of raspberries, red plums and mulberries in gently spicy repose. The palate unfurls layers and layers of lightly spiced red- and dark-fruit flavors with tannins that seem to hold endlessly on the finish. Pitch-perfect and noble. An essay in grace and charm. Akin to grand cru Burgundy and maybe Musigny too! This really ought to be left alone for a decade.”
