87 Points Robert Parker
Deep garnet-brick in color, the 1999 RWT Shiraz has an earthy, meaty and gamey nose accented by licorice and tar notes over dried berries. The earthy, medium-bodied palate is elegant and very savory with crisp acidity. It is fading slightly.

Medium to full red-purple; abundant ripe, sweet, dark berry fruit is married with French oak on the bouquet; the palate has excellent mouthfeel and structure with fine-grained but persistent tannins adding to the length of the wine. A particularly good outcome for the vintage. Drink to 2020.

The elegantly-styled, restrained 1999 Shiraz RWT is an elegant example of a Barossa Shiraz. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by a medium-bodied wine offering up floral, raspberry, cherry, and currant aromas nicely dosed with subtle wood. Enjoy this pure, refreshing 1999 over the next decade. Source: Robert Parker (Wine Advocate) October, 2002 by Robert Parker
