92 Points Robert Parker

The blockbuster 1998 Shiraz The Armagh exhibits a murky plum/garnet/purple color in addition to a big, sweet nose of black fruits, earth, pepper, and spice. It reveals more tannin than the 1999 or 2000, in addition to all the concentration, force, and viscosity of the 1999. The 1998 possesses a more rugged finish, but it is, overall, a wine of greater depth and dimension. While not as velvety-textured as either of its younger siblings, it is loaded with potential. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2016.

95 Points James Halliday

Offers sumptuous power and richness, plum, blackberry, dark chocolate and earth on the bouquet and layered palate alike, a touch of red cherry perfectly ripened, with the oak in the back seat where it should be. The palate is rich and luscious, with layer-upon-layer of berry fruit and tannins to sustain it for the long haul. Limited restaurant availability. Drink to 2023.

95 Points James Halliday

Dense red-purple; rich, luscious dark berry, chocolate and earth aromas, perfectly ripened, with the oak in the back seat where it should be. The palate is rich and luscious, with layer-upon-layer of minty berry fruit and tannins to sustain it for the long haul. Drink to 2018.
