» 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.

96.5 Points Robert Parker

The 2008 Old Bastard is 100% Shiraz off 115 year old bush vines. Very deep purple-black colored, the nose is youthfully mute giving subtle notes of damp soil and underbrush over a floral scents, dark cherries, crushed blueberries, mulberries, nutmeg, allspice and a whiff of cardamom. With coaxing, aromas of chocolate and menthol emerge. The palate is very full-bodied and richly fruited with a high level of enlivening acid, firm, very finely textured tannins and a long mocha and baking spice finish. Consider broaching this beauty from 2013 and drink to 2022+.

95 Points James Halliday

Exceptionally old vines from 1893 have produced a dark and uncompromisingly dense offering full of black fruits, charred meat, fennel and bitter chocolate; thickly textured, the wine is epic in every regard. This is a take no prisoners wine. Drink to 2040.
