91 Points Robert Parker
The 2006 Shiraz is a glass-coating opaque purple color with an aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, smoke, espresso, and blueberry. Layered on the palate, it has outstanding grip, savory black fruit flavors, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will continue to unwind for several years and offer a drinking window extending from 2012 to 2022.

96 Points James Halliday
Dense deep purple-crimson; a sumptuously rich cascade of black fruits and some Christmas cake spices, yet miraculously retains elegance thanks to restraint in winemaking. Oh for a screwcap. Drink to 2026.
