Wine Spectator (WS) : 92 Points (2016)
Spice, tea and dried herb notes make for an aromatic opening to the core of tight berry, cherry and cranberry relish flavors. Detailed and aromatic through to the end, which shows precision and elegance

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2016)
A bit more aromatic and vibrant than the 2015, the 2016 Henry's Seven is a blend of 66% Shiraz, 15% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre, and 9% Viognier. Medium-bodied, plump and mouthwatering, it showcases attractive notes of cherries and stone fruit, with just a touch of savory black olive. It should drink well for at least 6-7 years.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 91 Points (2016)
This vintage of Henry's Seven leads with 66% Shiraz (the rest is made up of Grenache, Mataro and Viognier) although the eucalyptus and tobacco leaf aromas trick you into thinking there must be some Cabernet in here. Green olives, coffee grounds, raisiny plums and currant fruits and a copper penny tang are all present, too, precisely put together like a neatly wrapped present, in Henschke's typically poised and polished style. A silky texture, powdery tannins and a leafy nuance mark the finish. Drink now–2027.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2015)
An absolute beauty driven by shiraz and dressed by grenache, mataro and viognier. Concentrated blackberry fruit aromas and flavors with impressive flow and build. Spicy complexity and super fresh. Drink now.

James Halliday (JH) : 92 Points (2015)
65% shiraz, 20% grenache, 10% mataro, 5% viognier - the numbers add up to a balanced blend; vibrant raspberry and black-berried fruits and wafts of florals, pepper and musk. Medium-weighted with crunchy acidity and shapely tannins make this immediately approachable.

Wines & Spirits (W&S) : 91 Points (2015)
This is the Henschke’s shiraz-grenache-mataro blend, with five percent viognier cofermented with the shiraz. The viognier might point up the tannins as well as the floral, anise scent of the blend. Those tannins have a green peppercorn spice that adds to the wine’s brightness, accenting the cool notes of strawberries. It’s gamey and rustic, a wine for grilled eggplant and lamb.
