The 2007 Occam's Razor Shiraz was fermented naturally and aged for 13-14 months in 20% new French and American oak. Opaque purple-colored, it delivers a super-fragrant nose of Asian spices, incense, espresso, blueberry, and black cherry. This leads to a full-bodied, dense, very rich, yet elegant wine with superb concentration, great balance, and 6-8 years of aging potential. It should be at its best from 2015 to 2027. At the asking price, it is an incredible value in high-class Shiraz. Ron Laughton was one of Heathcote's original pioneers 25 years ago and now finds himself surrounded by more than 75 wineries. Nevertheless, Jasper Hill along with Wild Duck Creek remains at the top of the pyramid. It is a no frills winery with all of the aughton family's energy devoted to viticulture. The vineyards are dry-farmed and organic. They have also begun a joint venture with Michel Chapoutier to develop a vineyard adjacent to the existing property. When I visited the winery in September 2008, Ron Laughton was kind enough to show me a virtually complete vertical of both Georgia's and Emily's Paddock. It goes without saying that these impeccably made wines age beautifully. The new releases do not miss a beat."
