91 Points Robert Parker

The dense purple-colored 1997 Shiraz Octavius reveals a classic Barossa Shiraz perfume of creamy oak intermixed with blackberry liqueur, pepper, and meat. Opulent, full-bodied, fleshy, and chewy, this youthful 1997 is soft enough to be drunk, but should be at its peak between 2005-2015.

89 Points James Halliday

Medium to full red-purple; as ever, powerful American oak makes a major impact on both bouquet and palate. On the other side of the forest, dense and powerful dark cherry/small black fruits show their strength, the two parts united by tannins. A meal in itself. Drink to 2017.
