98 POINTS - Ray Jordan / Wine Pilot 2023 "This is the pinnacle of the Houghton range. It comes from the famous Justin vineyard, where some of the state’s finest wines have their genesis. This is one of the most elegant and stylish of any “Jack” yet released yet there is no shortage of engine room grunt. Chalky iron filing minerality emerges from the dark fruits on the nose. The palate Is seamlessly integrated with slightly gravelly but fine tannins working their magic. Of course, it is a pup now, but there is great potential for extended ageing."
