2015 d'Arenberg "The Dead Arm" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (Elsewhere $64)

96 points James Halliday: "This is a particularly good Dead Arm, its alcohol miraculously the same as the '14, but however that may be, it has an elegance to its mouthfeel and lingering finish." (08/2018) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Black cherries and black olives mark the nose of the 2015 The Dead Arm Shiraz, d'Arenberg's flagship bottling. It's a blend of older and younger vines from different sites, depending on what the fruit has to offer. Full-bodied, concentrated and firmly structured, it's nevertheless velvety on the long finish, p ...

2016 John Duval "Entity" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $40)

97 points James Halliday: "60% Barossa Valley, 40% Eden Valley grapes, open-fermented with submerged cap, matured for 15 months in new (33%) and used French hogsheads. Deeply colored; this is at once full-bodied and elegant, not a common marriage with young red wines with decades in front of them. The flavors are all black: blackberry, blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and licorice. The old vines have also provided ripe tannins, the whole theme resonated with oak a la Grange."

2016 d'Arenberg "The Stump Jump" Shiraz McLaren Vale

90 points Wine Spectator: "Distinctive, with a fresh note of spearmint complementing the juicy core of plum and blackberry flavors. Herb, chai tea and cigar box elements linger on the long, expressive finish, where the tannins firm up but never get in the way. *Best Value* (MW)" (12/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The medium-bodied 2016 The Stump Jump Shiraz is another terrific bargain. No, it's not a big, plush wine, but it is a crisp, remarkably drinkable mouthful of Shiraz. Red plums and cherries are buttressed by enough tannins so that this c ...

2014 John Duval "Plexus" GSM Barossa Valley South Australia (Elsewhere $44)

As is appropriate, complex, but largely fruit-driven, with red cherries/berries and plums to the fore, oak and (particularly) tannins taking a back seat."

2016 Hentley Farm Shiraz Barossa Valley

95 points James Halliday: "There's no magic in this wine other than the very high quality of the grapes (and the low price). The colour is typical Hentley Farm, deep, but with a vivid crimson-purple rim; the expressive black fruits bouquet and the medium to full-bodied, richly textured palate following the same path.

Crisp acidity leaves the mouth fresh, and thirsting for more." (08/2018) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Crushed stone, citrus rind and strawberries all mingle on the nose of Hentley Farm's 2017 Rose. It's not entirely dry tasting, but it remains light-bodied and refreshing, with enough bright red berries and citrus fruit flavors to balance any small amounts of residual sugar. ...

Production is small (250 cases), but the wine is very good, even excellent, with an elegant black currant, spice box, cedar, and dried herb-scented nose, attractive, medium to full-bodied flavors, low acidity, sweet tannin, and a clean finish.

It has the succulence of Langhorne Creek, but with a raft of flowery/spicy notes not so common in the region. Mocha oak adds another dimension, cuddling up to the plump tannins. Hedonistic? You bet."

Both are dense and full-bodied with soaring aromas of black fruits, damp earth, camphor, pepper, and asphalt. The 1996 is slightly more structured and tannic, and the 1998 is more perfectly formed with a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol, and wood (the latter component has completely disappeared at age eleven).

It offers a huge nose of blackberry and cassis liqueur, plums, figs, barbecue smoke, and lead pencil shavings.
