The top (Reillys) wine is the Stolen Block Shiraz, which is fashioned from 80+ year-old vines cropped at ½ ton of fruit per acre. The dense ruby/purple-hued 2002 Shiraz Stolen Block (15.1% alcohol) boasts superb fruit as well as full-bodied opulence, & wonderful peppery, blackberry & cassis notes gently touched by surprisingly subtle American oak. This is a big, full-throttle, rich, heady Shiraz to drink now.” – The Wine Advocate
“Polished, velvety style has intense red berry, blueberry & dark chocolate flavors that whoosh right through the long finish, balanced with a tart edge & a frame of sweet, creamy oak.” – Wine Spectator
