Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Spice Route Shiraz, aged in French oak for 18 months, is a full bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of prune, strawberry, smoke, coconut and vanilla. It has a nice structure with refined tannins (decant for 15-30 min) and a long to extra long, chalky finish. Though ready to drink now, it should age gracefully for the next 10 years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - I recommend giving this one a try just to gage how many to stock up on (scheduled to come out sometime in March/12). Tasted at "An Intimate Wine Tasting with Charles Back" Jan/12.
