Wine AdvocateThe 2003 The Factor (100% Shiraz aged 24 months in old French oak) is a riveting effort that displays the exquisite talent of David Powell. Its smoky perfume of blackberry liqueur intermixed with cherries, acacia flowers, and espresso roast is followed by a full-throttle, multi-layered palate as well as a 60-second finish. This stunning Shiraz should drink well for 10-15+ years.

Wine SpectatorDense and distinctive Shiraz that provides a lavish mouthful of licorice- and tar-accented purple plum, blueberry and sweet spice flavors. Framed with oak, but not at all woody. The finish rolls along unperturbed by the fine-grained tannins. Best from 2008 through 2020. 1,200 cases made.
