87 Points Robert Parker
More concentrated than the 2000, with a deeper color, the 2001 Shiraz reveals greater ripeness in the nose, and cuts a plusher, fuller, fleshier swath on the palate. Medium to full-bodied and supple, this heady, hedonistic, South Australia fruit bomb will drink well for 5-6 years.

85 Points James Halliday
Medium red-purple; a light, unpretentious and straightforward bouquet is followed by a palate which picks up the pace, offering pleasantly soft plum and blackberry fruit. Drink to 2008.
