Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2010 Alices Shiraz shows pronounced notes of creme de cassis and blackberry coulis on the nose with suggestions of grilled meat, charcoal, plum pudding and espresso. Very full-bodied, big and voluptuous in style, it packs in the berry preserve flavors with some spicy, savory undertones and is structured with firm, chewy tannins alongside very crisp acidity. It finishes long. Drink it 2014 to 2024+.
Score: 91+ points -- Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate, 2013
