"Purple-red; Barossa Valley blends of Shiraz/Grenache/Mourvedre seldom have the poise, conviction or richness of this wine; the flavours are multilayered yet not the least jammy, the tannins particularly good, the length all one can ask for. Screwcap."

"The 2008 Plexus Shiraz Grenache Mourvedre is a decidedly Shiraz dominant version of this classic blend. Deep garnet-purple colored, it gives an abundance of Indian spice aromas  cumin seed, fenugreek and cloves - over raspberry cordial, preserved blackberry, dusty earth, powdered cinnamon and moss covered tree bark. The full-bodied palate displays the elegance of this blend in its effortless harmony, offering a medium-high level of very fine tannins, crisp acid and ample opulent flesh with a long finish. Drink it now to 2018+."~LPB

Rhone Report 93
"A blend of 53% Shiraz, 26% Grenache, and 21% Mourvedre that's aged in a scant 10% new French oak (mostly aged in 3-year-old larger barrels), the 2008 John Duval Wines Plexus is a brilliantly put together blend that boasts top-notch aromas of black currants, red plums, sappy underbrush, mint, candied flowers, and pepper on the nose. While it?s upfront and loaded with fruit, it nevertheless has uncommon depth and complexity. On the palate, it is seamless and polished, with a full-bodied, elegant texture, integrated acidity, and beautiful purity of fruit that shines through the finish. Classic stuff that is more than a little impressive; it will drink beautifully for 10-15 years."~JD

Wine Spectator 90
"Bright and jazzy, with a smoky edge to the tart blackberry and cherry flavors, picking up a licorice note on the finish. Has complexity and balance, and cellaring should bring it all together. Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. Best from 2012 through 2018."~HS

Stephen Tanzer 93
"Inky ruby. Expressive black raspberry and cherry aromas are complicated by black and white pepper and incense. A floral note comes up air and carries onto the palate, joining sweet red and dark berry preserve flavors and undertones of anise and candied rose. A hint of candied flowers lingers on a very long, sappy finish. I'd have no problem drinking this now. For a wine from a ripe vintage this is quite elegant."~ST
