2014 the twilight path - 91 points

A 70/20/10% blend of primitivo, mataro and graciano as far removed from its Howling Dog sibling as the sun and the moon; this has a dart board of juicy, spicy, earthy nuances all in a light to medium-bodied frame. To be enjoyed while The Howling Dog calms down.

2014 the eleventh hour - 94 points

Bright colour; has the best of both worlds, with the lush black fruits of Barossa shiraz while retaining freshness and poise. Makes its point quietly, not with a sledge hammer.

2014 the howling dog - 95 points

A deeply coloured, ultra-exotic 72/16/12% blend of saperavi, petite sirah (durif) and tannat; has all the qualities its varietal parentage promise; it is infinitely powerful and compact, a vinous black hole in space, yet retains sufficient balance to guide it through decades of change.
