Ron Thorn Shiraz

2016 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 91 PTS & Cellar Selection - WE

wine enthusiast 91 pts"This big-boned Barossa Shiraz lets its premium nature be known inside and out, from the heavy bottle to the lashings of polished oak billowing over masses of dark-berry fruit. Mint, chocolate and vanilla are there too and while there's plenty of flash here, there's also a good deal to like. The palate gets even more serious when plush silky fruit is gripped by vice-like tannins. This rich wine is made for the long haul so don't touch it yet. Drink 2021–2034. CHRISTINA PICKARD"

2015 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 95 PTS - WA

wa95"Yes, the 100% new oak shows on this bad boy, but the fruit is so massively concentrated that I don't see it being a problem. The 2015 Ron Thorn Single Vineyard Shiraz is a full-bodied, plush wine, with loads of baking spices, vanilla, boysenberry and cola. Long and dusty on the finish, this should be a long-lived wine. - Joe Czerwinski"

2014 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"Vivid purple. Heady, oak-accented cherry preserve, blackberry, cola and coconut scents are energized by a jolt of spicy cracked pepper. Alluringly sweet and  expansive, offering palate-staining dark fruit, spicecake and mocha flavors and a suave floral pastille nuance. Shows impressive vivacity for its brawn, and finishes very long, smooth and smoky, featuring repeating coconut and blue fruit character and harmonious tannins that come in late. - Josh Raynolds"

2014 Ron Thorn Shiraz Single Vineyard Barossa - 92+ PTS - WA

wa92"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Ron Thorn Single Vineyard Shiraz is beautifully scented of warm blackberries, black cherries and plum preserves over suggestions of toasty oak, mocha, potpourri, incense and smoky bacon. The youthful palate is still fairly oak driven at this primary stage ... - Lisa Perrotti-Brown"
