Expert Reviews

94 points Robert Parker

"A prodigious, decadently rich effort, Oliverhill’s 2003 Shiraz Jimmy Section (15% alcohol) is a 100% Shiraz aged in French oak, of which one-third is new. It offers up a luxurious aromatic display of loamy earth, new saddle leather, blackberry liqueur, charcoal, and barbecue spices. Layered, chewy, full-bodied, and opulent with extravagant richness, sweet, supple tannin, and low acidity, this is a knock-out Shiraz to drink over the next 5-12 years."

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Very deep brick red colour with deep brick red hue. The nose reveals notes of prune, spice, liquorice, mocha and coffee over a slightly smoky endnote. The palate is mouth filling, with flavours of spice, liquorice and black pepper. Chalky tannins, moderate palate length with very ripe fruit characteristics emerging. Long aftertaste of spice and white pepper.
