Coriole Lloyd Reserve Shiraz 2001 Magnum 1.5L, McLaren Vale
James Halliday - 93pts- A powerful, potent and complex bouquet of blackberry and spice; regional chocolate and lots of oak add to the palate flavour; long finish.
Date Tasted 12 Oct 2003 Drink By 2015
Dense, rich and beautifully focused, a lavish mouthful of blueberry, blackberry, licorice and pepper flavors balanced deftly with vibrant acidity and fine tannins. It all lasts effectively on the long, multilayered finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 400 cases made. -HS - 92 pts
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 89 pts - The 2001 Shiraz Lloyd Reserve's dense ruby/purple color is followed by a sweet nose of earth, black fruits, pepper, and pungent spices. Soft and savory, with spicy oak, underbrush, and herb characteristics, it is a fruit-forward, generous, attractive Shiraz to drink over the next 7-8 years. - Oct 2005
