90 Points Robert Parker

Given his very traditional style of winemaking, my instincts suggest these wines probably are least impressive in their first several years of life, and that certainly seemed to be confirmed by the best vintages in the vertical. Nevertheless, this wine is loaded with potential. The wine exhibits a saturated black ruby/purple color, a superb nose of blackberries, relatively high tannin, a full body, and a closed, dense, chewy constitution. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2020.

90 Points Robert Parker

A fine offering was the 1998 Shiraz Basket Press. While not a great value, it is an outstanding effort displaying a dense purple color, a jammy, blackberry fruit bomb character, a supple texture, formidable glycerin, full body, and a lush mid-palate and finish. It should drink well for at least a decade.
