d'Arenberg Shiraz/Viognier Laughing Magpie 2009
91 Points - International Wine Cellar, July/August 2011
"(a 92%/8% blend, with a pH of 3.31) Bright purple. An exotic and expressive bouquet evokes blackberry, candied plum, violet and mocha, with spice and incense notes adding complexity. Sweet, juicy dark berry flavors show liqueur-like intensity and gain spiciness with aeration. A late note of white pepper adds bit and focus to the plump fruit qualities, which linger on the finish. This will drink very well young." -Josh Raynolds

91 Points - Wine Advocate, February 2012
"The 2009 The Laughing Magpie Shiraz Viognier contains 6% co-fermented Viognier. It presents a deep garnet-purple color and notes of blackberry and blueberry preserves with some raisins, violets, peach blossoms and baking spices. Rich, ripe, and nicely balanced, itís full bodied with firm grainy tannins, crisp acid and a long finish. Drink it now to 2021+." -Lisa Perrotti-Brown
