90pointsCape Barren 2010 Old Vine Reserve Release Shiraz (McLaren Vale)

This blends fruit from two vineyards, one 80-plus years old, the other 120-plus, then adds ample oak. Cedar, vanilla and plum lead the way, with brighter notes of raspberry emerging with time in the glass. It's not overly extracted or tannic, with a slight creaminess to the texture and an admirably long, supple finish. Drink now–2025. Joe Czerwinski
