Robert Parker Rating:94
94 Points Robert Parker
Produced from relatively young vines some of whose fruit is sold to Seppelt and Penfolds, the 2004 Shiraz Greenock possesses an opaque purple color in addition to a gorgeously rich nose of toasty, smoky oak interwoven with black raspberry, blackberry, and cassis fruit flavors. Full-bodied, rich, and spicy, with no hard edges, it displays a generous dosage of American oak that is nearly over the top.

94 Points James Halliday
Deep, dense colour; saturated blackberry, plum and black cherry fruit; ripe tannins and lots of complementary oak. Needs patience. Drink to 2019.
