Wine Enthusiast

Powerful, vibrant and fragrant, with dried lavender, Earl Grey, dried oregano, five-spice power and dark chocolate aromatics to mingle with the core of velvety smooth plum, black cherry and wild blackberry flavors. The tannin's firm up appealingly on the finish, which goes on and on. Drink now through 2042.

Wine Advocate

Bursting with blueberry and blackberry fruit, Duval's 2019 Entity Shiraz looks to be a winner, cut from the same cloth as the 2018. Vague hints of peppery spice and violet-laced florals add complexity on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is ripe, supple and mouthwatering, with an almost crisp edge to the cocoa-dusted finish.
