The Directors’ Cut has always been a big wine and a window into the style and power of Langhorne Creek shiraz. The nose is rich and hedonistic with aromatic, meaty, black fruit. The palate is full of black licorice, black and blue fruits with a spicy, warm underbelly and a dusting of menthol. Tannins are dense but sweet. I suggest grilled lamb to tackle this wine now, or you can cellar it for three to six years. A blockbuster style made for a specific audience.
Score: 91 points -- Anthony Gismondi, June 2018
