95 points "Lazy Ballerina shiraz hasn’t skipped a beat since it burst onto the scene with the 2004 vintage. It was almost a lark for owner/winemaker/viticulturist James Hook back then but it’s become far more serious now that he’s moved into his own winemaking digs. This bloke is a star in the making - if he’s not already. Two things: this weighs in at 15.5% alcohol but it barely shows it. And anyway, it’s just a bloody brilliant wine. James Hook has 100% done it again. This has structure and weight, length and mouthfeel. It’s syrupy smooth and rich and carries its lake of tannin with ease. It’s gorgeous now, all melted chocolate, tar and dense dark blackberries, its gently vanillin aftertaste perfectly pitched. Forget the price, this is top shelf. Oh, and it will be good in ten years time too. Back up the truck. " Best 2009-2018
