94 Points Robert Parker
The opaque purple-colored 1995 Command Shiraz boasts huge toasty American oak aromas intermixed with thrilling levels of jammy black raspberry and berry fruit. The wine is explosively rich, with low acidity, and spectacular concentration and purity. Although not complex, it is mouth-filling, teeth-staining, and ostentatious. Drink it over the next 7-10+ years. I suspect This wine will become more civilized and less exuberant with bottle age. Elderton's wines are not for tasters seeking subtlety and elegance. This is an outrageously oaky, flamboyantly-styled offering with immense hedonistic appeal.

88 Points James Halliday
Medium red-purple; the bouquet is clean and only moderately intense. The wine swells and opens up on the palate, with sweet red berry/cherry fruit, some chocolate and pleasant vanilla flavours from the balanced and integrated American oak. Soft tannins. Drink to 2011.
