» Sometimes the same vintage of a wine is listed at different prices. That's because some vendors are more aggressive and want a quick sale. We recommend buying the bottle with the best price, it's the same as the other bottles unless there's a condition note indicating otherwise. »Other times there's a reason for different prices for the same wine and vintage. For example, bottles with defects such as a torn label or low ullage level generally sell for a discount vs. wine with no defects.

96 Points Robert Parker

The 1998 Shiraz Reserve has the most potential of this trio. It combines some of the mature elements of the 1997 with the massive richness of the 1996, but without the 1996''s slightly rustic framework. A dense purple color is followed by a sensational bouquet of creme de cassis, charcoal, and incense. Full-bodied, opulent, and voluptuously-textured, this is a big, but incredibly well-balanced wine. Its fruit bomb-like personality of a decade ago has morphed into something far more civilized, delineated, and refined. This gorgeous offering is a superb example of McLaren Vale Shiraz. Enjoy it over the next 10-15+ years.

90 Points James Halliday

Dense purple-red; a wine in the massive magimix fruit and oak style with everything thrown into the blender, with huge American oak whipped up with dense berry fruit. Taste, don't drink (yet). Drink to 2015.
